The amount of time that a schedule activity can be delayed without delaying the early start date of any successor or violating a schedule constraint.
The amount of time that a schedule activity can be delayed from its early start date without delaying the project finish date or violating a schedule constraint.
Often referred to as preferred, preferential, or soft logic. A relationship that is established based on knowledge of best practices within a particular application area or an aspect of the project where a specific sequence is desired. Should be fully documented since they can create arbitrary total float values and can limit later scheduling options. When fast tracking techniques are employed, these dependencies should be reviewed and considered for modification or removal.
A relationship between project activities and non-project activities. Usually outside the project teams control.
Involve a relationship between project activities an are generally inside the project team's control.
Often referred to has hard logic. A relationship that is legally or contractually required or inherent in the nature of the work. Often involve physical limitations, such as on a construction site. Also refereed to has hard logic or hard dependencies.
Project Schedule Network Diagram
A graphical representation of the logical relationships among the project schedule activities. Usually shows the project's critical path schedule activities.
Critical Path Method (CPM)
A method used to estimate the minimum project duration and determine the amount of scheduling flexibility on the logical network paths within the schedule model.
Critical Chain Method (CCM)
A schedule method that allows the project team to place buffers on any project schedule path to account for limited resources and project uncertainties.
The sequence of activities that represents the longest path through a project, which determines the shortest possible duration. Normally characterized by zero total float.
Critical Path Activity
Any activity on the critical path in a project schedule.
A technique used for dividing and subdividing the project scope and project deliverables into smaller, more manageable parts.
The approved version of a schedule model that can be changed only through formal change control procedures and is used as a basis for a comparison to actual results.
