5. 5. Example of a Hammock Activity: As scheduled dates in other tasks change in the network diagram, the duration and start and/or finish dates of the hammock task will change as well. • Three tasks A, B, and C. • Task B must start on some date from task A (date A) • Task B must finish on some date from task C (date C). http://www.pmchamp.net/ 5
6. 6. Example of a Hammock Activity: • In this case, Task B can be done between the time it takes to do task A and Task C. • If Task A is preponed, then there is much larger time to do Task B. • If task C is delayed (takes longer to complete), that means that you also get more time to do task B. • Thus Task B is hanging between the start of Task A and end of Task C. http://www.pmchamp.net/ 6
