Fast Tracking and Mandatory Dependeny

Postby Venkat Sun Jun 08, 2014 5:39 pm

Hi,

During fast tracking, can the mandatory dependeny especially the external dependencies also can be fast tracked ?
Basically how the dependencies should be considered during fast tracking?

Thanks,
Venkat

God you asked this. This is a classic question to understand that we have some types of dependencies. Now when you are doing schedule compression you have to account for type of dependencies activities are having.

Is it mandatory dependency? if so, you can't do much about it, have to live with it and compress/fast track keeping it intact
Is it discretionary? If so, as a caveat for the current situation, can you live with out it as PM? take a call
to fast-track the project can you manage external dependency? e.g. if you fast track you need some raw material earlier than planned, can you manage that?
Similar question has to be asked for internal dependencies.

Point here is, you have to manage dependencies and ensure as per type of dependency, you have asked the right questions and planned for the same.
