positive and negative float examples

Postby coolpmp69 Thu Jan 22, 2015 2:27 pm

Can anyone explain using examples how to calculate positive and negative float. I have viewed Saket's video on Critical path and understand the concept of total and free float.

Thanks in advance.

The float calculation remains the same, if we have positive number we call it positive float else negative. Negative float represents a situation which needs to be taken care. Like we need our shop open by 25 Dec but the sequence of activity is showing 5 jan as end date. so we have negative float here.
