Understanding “Driving Slack” in Project Scheduling and ITs Uses

December 13 @ 12:00 pm 1:00 pm CST

Event Description:

In this webinar, we will explain the concept of “Driving Slack” in project scheduling, how it’s different from “Total Slack” and “Free Slack”. We will explain how Driving Slack can be used to calculate a driving/critical path in Microsoft Project, and why the method of using driving slack is more accurate than the Constraint/Deadline Method. In addition, we will show how our SSI Dependency Analysis tools automate these calculations.

Learning Objectives:

  • Be able to define “Driving Slack” and understand the differences between it, “Total Slack”, and “Free Slack”.
  • Be able to manually calculate the amount of Driving Slack any predecessor has to its successor.
  • Be able to manually calculate a driving path to an item in a schedule using Driving Slack
  • Understand the SSI Dependency Analysis Tools and their uses.
