Network dig Qs

Postby Vaishali Sat Jul 23, 2016 6:08 am

You have just created the following network logic diagram to describe the planned flow of activities for your project which will start tomorrow:

PMP sample question 75 Network diagram

Which potential inconsistency in the diagram should you solve right now to ensure that the activities and the milestones "Start" and "A-F finished" are correctly linked?


Activity E is open ended (a "dangle") in relation to the finish milestone path convergence.
Activity F is open ended in relation to the path divergence after the start milestone.
You cannot calculate a critical path when lags and/or leads are calculated in percent.
Activities E to F need another task drawn as a hammock to calculate level of effort.

Answer is 1st i.e. activity E is open ended.

Please explain

I got below explanation on PM Zilla for answer : A

Actually here is lead in activity F, by 60% of duration with finish of E.

It means when F will start, E will be required to complete its 60% job and thus activity F is not its successor activity and when activity E will complete it would be considered as an open ended. But all activities or network should be converged at finish mile stone.

Hence activity E should be made connected to the finish mile stone directly by one arrow.
