Look inside

Maximize productivity with maximum flow algorithms and some basic C# programming. You play the role of a nuclear power plant operations manager. Your challenge is to assign jobs to your group of employees, and your goal is to achieve maximum productivity. You’ll build a program that generates networks for testing maximal flow algorithms, as well as a program that finds maximal flows through a network of capabilities. Then, you’ll put your maximal flow program to work to match employees with jobs while ensuring that as many jobs as possible are completed.

This project is designed for learning purposes and is not a complete, production-ready application or solution.

book and video resources

When you start your liveProject, you get full access to the following books and videos for 90 days.


This liveProject is for intermediate C# programmers who are familiar with basic WPF and XAML. To begin these liveProjects you’ll need to be familiar with the following:

  • Visual Studio 2022
  • Windows operating system
  • Create a class
  • Define constructors
  • Create a WPF interface
  • Use menu and canvas controls
  • Use extension methods

you will learn

In this liveProject, you’ll learn to use specific algorithms to calculate maximal flows in a network and assign tasks while ensuring the maximum amount of work is flowing through the network.

  • Work with files
  • Define classes
  • Use lists, loops, methods, and other basic techniques
  • Use WPF to make user interfaces including menus


You choose the schedule and decide how much time to invest as you build your project.
