Two-Pass Technique with MS Project

 

Project Management Institute (PMI)® Professional Development Units (PDUs):
This Webinar is eligible for 1 PMI® PDU in the Technical category of the Talent Triangle.

 

Event Description:

In schedule management, one of the scheduling approaches to develop a project or program schedule is the Critical Path Method (CPM), which determines the critical path. You, as a management practitioner, would have heard about CPM because it’s a widely scheduling approach.

The main way to determine the critical path is to use the forward pass and backward pass technique. This is also known as the two-pass technique. With this method, one can find out the early start (ES), late start (LS), early finish (EF) and late finish (LF) for every activity in a network diagram. This method also determines the total float (TF) or total slack, which informs about the flexibility of schedule.

In this webinar, we explore:

  • How to conduct forward pass and backward pass calculations
  • How to determine the total float/slack for the activities
  • What are the significances of total float, ES, EF, LS and LF?
  • How does Microsoft Project software address two-pass technique?
  • How does Microsoft Project software determine total float/slack?
