 Steven Mudrinich, PMP Offline Expert Boarder Posts: 126 Karma: 7 Thank you received: 25 Rosa, I suspect you haven't received an answer yet because your question is a little difficult to comprehend. Can you display the schedule problem as a graphic? This would help us better visualize it and work out a solution for you.

 Anonymous Visitor In ref to 1st post, when activities have FF relationship we need to consider larger duration due to overlapping each other: Activity 1 (20 d)+ Activity 2 (10-2 =8 d+3 )+ Activity 4 (6 d) = 37 days. In ref to the attached PDF, the correct answer is "B". Thanks, Mahabub Your e-mail address will never be displayed on the site. Check this box to be notified of replies to this topic.
