What is the difference between Continuous & Interruptible scheduling? 3. What is the no. of activities that u monitor & how do u make the update? 4. How do u measure & compare the progress? . What is total float? The amount of time that an activity can slip without delaying the end of the pro ject. Usually computed as TF = LF EF. 2. What are the difference between free float and total float? FF is a special type of TF. Whereas TF is the amount of time that an activity ca n slip without delaying the end of the project, FF is the amount of time that an activity can slip without delaying the early dates of a successor.

3. What is a constraint? A limitation that reduces the efficiency with which a project can be accomplishe d. Scheduling constraints come in three main falvours: NET, NLT and ON, standing for No Earlier Than, No Later Than, and (surprisingly!) On. These are input to a schedule, are usually calendar-based, and override the predecessor/successor l ogic, thus often causing positive or negative float on the longest path. Negativ e float needs to be resolved, and often is by compromising on other parts of the plan. Resource availability is another type of constraint that can delay a projects sch edule and efficiency. In general, constraints should not be input to the schedule until after the sche dule ahs been optimized through critical path analysis, as it is important to be able to gauge the impact of a constraint from the Newtonian constraints of the wo rk. 4. What are the difference between MS Project and Primavera? The same as between a Vespa and a Hummer. (Sometimes a Vespa can be more useful! ) 5. How to load cost & resource in a program? Through the WBS, in a process calle d activity-based resource assignments, or ABRA. Assigned resources should be ove rhead-burdened to get an accurate picture of costs. It is important to note that cost can be assigned, tracked and managed at a high er level than schedule or resources a euro is a euro is a euro, but both resourc es and schedule dates are specific, and need to be managed with greater specific ity. 6. What is WBS? Work breakdown structure, a hierarchical format for identifying, displaying, rep orting, and changing project work. Since the WBS is the skeleton of work on which the resource, cost, schedule information is draped, it is the principle tool for implementing scope/cost/schedule integration. 7. What is a milestone? What are the types of milestone? A milestone is an event. Activity-driven milestones are usually entered into PM software as activities with durations of zero. Since milestones have no duration , once they are reached they are immediately in the past. It is therefore good p ractice to name activities using the past participle of the verb (i.e., Test comp onent = activity; Component tested = milestone. 8. What are the difference between flag and milestone activity? No idea -- Ive never heard the term flag activity. 9. What is a critical activity? Although the term may be mis-used (i.e., with other meanings), a critical activi ty is one that is on the longest path. 10. What is resource allocation and leveling?

Resource allocation is assigning resources to activities (ABRA). Leveling is cha nging activity schedules to get rid of utilization spikes and use resources more ef ficiently. There are two different flavours of leveling: time-constrained and resou rce-constrained. Time- constrained leveling attempts to remove the resource utilization spikes/bo ttlenecks without delaying activities beyond an input date (often the CPM comple tion date, which means that no activity is delayed beyond its float). Resource-constrained leveling delays activities, if necessary, beyond their floa t(s) in order to reduce utilization levels, period by period, to availability le vels. The Total Project Control (TPC) methodology incorporates a resource-leveling met ric called the CLUB, or Cost of leveling with Unresolved Bottlenecks. This is th e amount by which project expected value is reduced PLUS the cost by which the p rojects Marching Army costs (Overhead and LOEs) increase due to the delay caused b y resource constraints. The CLUBs can be used to justify the additional resource s that would make the bottlenecks go away. 11. What is a Baseline Program? I dont know that precise term. The baseline plan is the commitments in terms of p roduct, cost, and schedule, both at project completion and at key interim points . On a fixed price, fixed deadline, contract, the delta between the baseline pla n and the working plan is management reserve and profit. Changes to the baseline plan (re-baselining) is usually only permitted if both cus tomer and contractor agree, and usually occur in the event of a mutually-agreed scope increase. Earned value tracking and analysis is usually performed based on the baseline pl an.
