Hello,


Why do we need to take  [-2] in account while calculating duration of activity 4? Activity 3 can be finished together with activity 2 and has 0 duration. Then all we have is FF+3 which will result in [6+3 =9] for activity 4


Activity A 


<----------------------------------->  


0                                              19                    = 20 days


Activity B


<----------------------------------->


20                                           29                   =  10 days


 


Activity C


<----------------------------------->


25                                          29                     = 0 days


 


Activity 4  [ 30,31,31 for lag time of 3]


<------------------------------------->                   = 3 days of leg + 6 days = 9 days


33                                            38


so total should be 39?


Can someone help here?

You have missed FF -2 for activity 3

Why should I take FF-2 for Activity 3 into account when it is done in parallel with Activity 2?
