Re: reserve analysis as a tool for control cost but not for control schedule

it is indirectly covered in 6.7.2.1

in CCM we focus on project buffer.

Re: Positive & Negative Float

During Planning SND, PM can handle the negative float by adding buffer to activity itself in CPM, or feeding buffer at the end of the path in CCM. Right? (I mean PM required to reduce the negative float to zero by any means) :roll:
