2 questions on time management

Postby kniraj Wed Nov 26, 2014 4:44 am

In the Q1 please let me know if they have added one to the number of weeks, since without that I was unable to get the right answer. The ES for L is coming to 15 weeks right ?

Dear Raj,

The answer to the Q1 depend upon what method you are using, Rita or PMBOK. If you are using PMBOK then the answer will be 16 if you are using Rita then the answer will be 15. I had the same issue while practicing Quampus question. Below is the thread

Dear Raj,

The answer to the Q2 will be 0.

Definition of Free Float – The amount of time that a schedule activity can be delayed without delaying the early start date of any SUCESSOR activity. PMBOK Page 177

Here activity A has only one successor activity which is B. And delay to activity A will impact the ES of activity B

Signor_rk and bs_pani,
Many thanks for the response. I also went thru the blogs on the Zero and One method for calculating the ES etc and the blog on the Total and Free float ... Clear now.

Saket and Namita, Thanks for the blog .. was very helpful.
