Study Cards on task, start, finish

How can activity sequencing be accomplished?
  • Computer driven
  • Manual process - easier to move around activities and dependencies
  • Blended approach - although a final sequence should at some point be determined
Report
What are the inputs for activity sequencing for the project team?
  • The schedule management plan - defines and directs the process of sequencing the activities
  • The activity list
  • Activity attributes - e.g. successor and predecessor
  • Milestone list
  • The project scope statement
  • Organizational process assets - e..g historical information
Report
What is the most common way of creating a network diagram?
'Activity on node' to illustrate the activities and the relationships between those activities. An example of this is the Precedence Diagramming Method The activities are put in circles or boxes and connected by arrows.
Report
What kind of relationships are distinguished in a PDM?
  • FS - finish to start - task A must be completed before task B can begin
  • SS - start to start - task A must start before task B can start
  • FF - finish to finish - task A must finish before task B can finish
  • SF- start to finish - task A must start before task B can finish (Just-in-time- scheduling)
Report
What kind of dependencies between activities does one recognize?
  • Mandatory dependencies (hard logic)
  • Discretionary dependencies - preferred order, decisions should be documented (soft logic, preferred logic, preferential logic)
  • External dependencies
  • Internal dependencies (e.g. developing - testing)
Report
What is the consequence of adding too much lead-time to a project?
  • This increases risk. When an abundance of lead time is used the project is often in a rush (rush in quality control, inspections and lead to project rejection from stakeholders)
  • Wonky scheduling issues.
