Finish-to-start question

Hi,

I have a question regarding the "finish-to-start" relationship:

"A schedule activity may begin 10 days before the predecessor activity finishes."

Why this is an example of "finish-to-start" relationship? The successor actually starts 10 days before the predecessor finishes, not that the successor starts after the predecessor finishes. So I am very confused here.

Thanks for sharing your feedback!

Forums: 

When predecessor finishes or completes then only successor activity will start.
Precedence Diagramming Method incorporates four kinds of dependencies or logical predecessor-successor relationships:
Start-to-Start
Start-to-Finish
Finish-to-Start
Finish-to-Finish
You are in confusion so, I am Telling only about Finish-to-start relationship.

Finish-to-Start: Until the predecessor activity is complete, the successor activity cannot start.

A Lead enables successor activity to begin soon.And also you can refer the follow link which showcase the relationship of the finish to start relationship with diagramatically.
