where 2 tasks must end at the same time.

where the start of the first is linked to

Lead & Lag Time


Lead time causes a successor task to overlap
a predecessor even though they are linked
finish to start (FS).
Lag time allows you to add a delay between
the start of the successor and the end of the
predecessor.
Simply specify lead or lag time in the
Predecessor column.
Lead time is represented with a minus sign (-)
Lag time is represented with a plus sign (+).

Milestones let you gauge your progress through the project.

Its
good practice to include a Start and Finish
Milestone
for each division/part of your WBS.

The Critical Path


The Critical path is the flow of tasks, of which,
a delay in any one of these tasks will cause a
delay to the project.
It is the longest path through the project
network diagram and the shortest possible
time to complete the project

Tracking Project
To control the variations from actual plan (baseline)
we need to track project and continuously check
the health of the project.
EVM is a financial measurement tool that
combines the conflicting aspects of scope,
schedule and cost into a unified set of metrics.
These metrics can be used for measuring,
monitoring, reporting and forecasting project
performance. It can be used through all the
phases of a project, from initiation to closure.

Example
You have a project to build a new fence. the fence is
four sided as shown.
Each side is to take one day to build and is budgeted
for $1000 per side.
The sides are planed to be completed one after the
other.
Today is the end of day three.

Calculate AC, BAC, CV, CPI,SV, SPI, EAC etc.
