  12. 12. Float and their Management• Float Definitions: – Float or Slack is the spare time available or not critical activities. – Indicates an amount of flexibility associated with an activity. – There are four various categories of activity float:Spring 2008, Arrow Diagramming 12King Saud University Dr. Khalid Al-Gahtani
  13. 13. 1. Total Float:• Total Float or Path Float is the maximum amount of time that the activity can be delayed without extending the completion time of the project.• It is the total float associated with a path.• For arbitrary activity (i j), the Total Float can be written as:• Path Float Total Float (Fij) = LSij ESij = LFij EFij = Lj – EFijSpring 2008, Arrow Diagramming 13King Saud University Dr. Khalid Al-Gahtani
  14. 14. 2. Free Float• Free Float or Activity Float is equal to the amount of time that the activity completion time can be delayed without affecting the earliest start or occurrence time of any other activity or event in the network.• It is owned by an individual activity, whereas path or total float is shared by all activities a long slack path.• can be written as: Activity Float Free Float (AFij) = Min (ESjk) EFij = Ej EFij Spring 2008, Arrow Diagramming 14 King Saud University Dr. Khalid Al-Gahtani
  15. 15. 3. Interfering Float:• That if used will effect the float of other activities along its path (shared float).• For arbitrary activity (i j), the Interfering Float can be written as: Interfering Float (ITFij) = Fij AFij = Lj EjSpring 2008, Arrow Diagramming 15King Saud University Dr. Khalid Al-Gahtani
  16. 16. 4. Independent Float• It is the amount of float which an activity will always possess no matter how early or late it or its predecessors and successors are.• Float that is “owned” by one activity.• In all cases, independent float is always less than or equal to free float.• can be written as: Independent Float (IDFij) = Max (0, Ej Li –Dij) = Max (0, Min (ESjk) - Max (LFli) Dij)Spring 2008, Arrow Diagramming 16King Saud University Dr. Khalid Al-Gahtani

  23. 23. Critical Path Identifications• The critical path is continues chain of activities from the beginning to the end, with zero float (if the zero-float convention of letting Lt = Et for terminal network event is followed).• The critical path is the one with least path float (if the zero-float convention of letting Lt = Et for terminal network event is NOT followed).• The longest path through the network.• T = ∑ ti*, where – T = project Completion Time – ti* = Duration of Critical Activity• There may be more than one critical paths in a networkSpring 2008, Arrow Diagramming 23King Saud University Dr. Khalid Al-Gahtani
  24. 24. Identify CP activities & path(s)1. Critical Activity:• An activity for which no extra time is available (no float, F = 0). Any delay in the completion of a critical activity will delay the project duration.2. Critical Path:• Joins all the critical activities.• Is the longest time path in the network?• CP’s could be multiple in a project network.Spring 2008, Arrow Diagramming 24King Saud University Dr. Khalid Al-Gahtani
