 Paresh Sharma Topic Author Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 8 Karma: -1 Thank you received: 0 The answer is FS + 15 days lag i had assumed FS because finish of landscaping before finish of building But this is a 15 day delay so i had chosen C but the answer is A a 15 day lead Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.

 Cornelius Fichtner Offline Administrator President, OSP International LLC Posts: 1931 Karma: 113 Thank you received: 525 Paresh, I am just as confused as you are. Based on the description you gave "Building completion has to be PRECEDED by the landscaping" I would have selected answer "A. FS with 15 days Lead" because FS with a lead makes the second task start earlier. Have you contacted the original question author and asked for an explanation?

 Paresh Sharma Topic Author Offline Fresh Boarder Posts: 8 Karma: -1 Thank you received: 0 your answer is correct CF.. i was visualizing it incorrectly i later thought what i would have done in MPP and it made sense Let us assume Finish Landscaping is 10th task and its a milestone view (its example not to be considered very specific) # description----duration---Predecessor '10' - Finish Landscaping 0days --- assume -9FS '11'- Complete building ---- 0days ----10FS+15 -- thus lead Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.

## Question on Lead and Lag 5 years 1 week ago #11442

 hasnat Visitor Suppose the Building Construction work need 40 days. and Land Scaping need 30 days. In normal process, The building will be completed first within 40 days and then Land Scaping will take 30 days.Total Time will be 40+30=70 days. But Applying Lead time for Land Scaping...The task will start 15, Total workdays prior and thereby overlap the construction work for 15 days. So, total time will be 40+15(30-15)=55 days. So it is Finish to start 15. That means Building completion task finishes and prior to finish that task Land Scaping start.. Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site.

 Anonymous Visitor Correct answer is A because a “Lead” provides acceleration to the Successor Activity with Finish to Start (FS) relationship. Successor starts 15 days before Predecessor finish.
