## 5th E.: Critical path method shown in figure 6-18 4 years 5 months ago #3928

 Daniel Blossey Topic Author Offline Junior Boarder Por el placer de vivir viajando! Posts: 32 Thank you received: 0 Hi, I am referring to video "L06.06.2_Develop_Schedule_HR.mp4" in which the critical path method is shown. This also links to figure 6-18 of the PMBok Guide, 5th edition. I do not understand all the numbers inside the activity boxes. e.g., activity B has a float of 5 days. Do you have an example which explains all the numbers, forward and backward pass, float etc. in more detail using the presented schedule model format? Thanks, Daniel from Germany!

Posts: 32 Thank you received: 0 Ah, I think I have the answer: The float or free float is the difference of Late Start and Early Start date. So for activity B it is 11 - 6 = 5 days. Result: The project manager can wait 5 more days for activity B without delaying the successor activity D. What is the difference between total and free float?

Is there a log file which shows when you have updated or added your videos? Because I may be out of sync with the videos after a while. Thanks!
