- a Describes the processes required to ensure timely and appropriate generation, collection, dissemination and ultimate disposition of project information. It includes identifying stakeholders, planning communication, distributing information, managing stakeholder expectations, and reporting performance.
- b A schedule compression technique in which phases or activities normally performed in sequence are performed in parallel. Fast tracking often results in rework and increased risk. Fast tracking only works if activities can be overlapped to shorten the duration.
- c A schedule network analysis technique used to determine the amount of scheduling flexibility on various logical network paths in the project schedule network, and to determine the minimum total project duration. Early start and finish dates are calculated by means of a forward pass analysis, using a specified start date. Late start and finish dates are calculated by means of a backward pass analysis, starting from a specified completion date.
- d Used to solicit proposals from prospective sellers
- e Modifications to the cost estimation prepared for the project

Define Activities → Process of identifying and documenting relationships among the project activities. Sequencing can be performed by using project management software or by using manual or automated techniques.
Grade → The process to develop an approximation (estimate) of the monetary resources needed to complete project activities.
To-Complete Performance Index (TCPI) → The process of collecting and distributing performance information, including status reports, progress measurements, and forecasts to stakeholders.
Deliverable → A deliverable is a unique, tangible and verifiable work/product. Each project phase is marked by the completion of one or more deliverables.
Data precision → Describes the extent to which a risk is known or understood. Measures extent of data available as well as reliability of data.
