In this case the pass is made from right to left commencing at the finish. 14 Network with EST and LFT the earliest the finish can be attained is 26 days, then the latest the last activities (H, K and L) must finish is also 26, so this entered in the finish node. e. day 22. e. H which takes 6 days is 20 days. This process continues back to the start. It is important to note that the latest finishing time of the start is 0 and if this is not achieved in the calculation there is a mistake somewhere.

However, if the activity is preceded by more than one activity the process is more complicated. Activity E can only commence when B, C and D, all of which start at the completion of A, have been completed. e. D So, what about B and C which are of shorter duration? Since D takes 12 days, B has 6 days spare and C has 7. This is referred to as float and gives the planner various options. These are: • Either or both B and C can start at the completion of A and if they begin to go behind programme it does not matter unless this delay is more than 6 and 7 days respectively.
