Multiple dependency activity on node (AoN) networks ( lecture )

Four possible dependencies between activities Finish-to-start (or normal) dependency Start-to-start dependency Finish-to-finish dependency Start-to-finish dependency

Finish-to-start (or normal) dependency a 0 30 0 3 3 b 7 90 7 9 2 4 0 0

Start-to-start (or lag-start) dependency x 0 30 0 3 3 y 4 60 4 6 2 4 00 Example: the air-conditioning should be started in a building a given time before visitors are let inside

Finish-to-finish (lag-finish) dependency c 0 30 0 3 3 d 5 70 5 7 2 4 00 Example: c: writing a chapter to a book d: editing the whole book lag: acceptance of the chapter by the reviewer

Start-to-finish dependency a 0 60 0 6 6 b 2 40 2 4 2 4 00 Example: a: production with a new machine b: quality check lag:to ensure the coverage for the test production with quality checking

Dependencies can be used in combination Start-to-start & finish-to-finish: a 0 3 ? 0 3 3 b 5 9? 7 9 2 5 6 ? ? Example: a: marketing action b: measuring the effect of the action lags: the effect needs time to appear, and to fade out

Floats on multiple dependency networks Total float = LFT – EST – Duration Early total float = LFT – EFT Late total float = LST – EST In case of multiple dependence free float cannot be calculated
