Quick view on free float in a network diagram

Postby shankars Thu Dec 04, 2014 6:10 am

Hi
Good morning all.Apart from analysing the network diagram in detail, is there any way to easily identify the free float(using a formula) in a network diagram.

Regards
Shankar

I have not seen any formula so far for calculating the Free Float/Slack. Still can we write down like this:

Free Float/slack = ES of Successor activity - EF of Predecessor activity - 1
This also seems the formula for calculating the Lag Time.

Expert comments are most welcome ....

Thanks
Regards ,
