Time maangement

Postby suresi00 Mon Dec 11, 2017 10:10 pm

A project manager tracks the work of team members using a network logic
diagram. Which effect will the presence of an actual finish date have on the
calculation of float for the finished activity?

o Finished activities have only float left when they have been completed on
schedule.
o Calculating free float and total float is generally not reasonable for finished
activities.
o When an activity has been finished, total float gets often converted to become
free float.
o When an activity has been finished, float gets often converted to become
slack.

Is the rationale behind the answer is that it doesn't make sense to calculate float when the activity is finished as now we are not dependent ?

yes
why would you want to calculate free float for a finished activity :)
for e.g.Total float is the amount of time an activity can be delayed without delaying the project completion date - but the activity is completes already so whats the point?
