Flashcards in Knowledge Checks - Chapter 6 Deck (23):
1

The four possible precedence relationships in an AON network diagram are: __ - __ - __, __ - __ - __, __ - __ - __ and __ - __ - __

start to finish, start to start, finish to finish, finish to start

2

The diagramming method that allows for conditional looping is called __

GERT

3

The three types of network dependencies are known as: __, __ and __

mandatory, discretionary, external

4

The completion of a key deliverable or a phase in the project is called a __

milestone

5

Starting a successor activity before the predecessor is complete is called a __, while a delay in starting a successor activity is defined as a __

lead, lag

6

The five processes in the Planning process group for Time Management are: __ __, __ __, __ __ __, __ __ __, __ __

define activities, sequence activities, estimate activity resources, estimate activity duration, develop schedule

7

Another name for the three point estimate is called __

PERT

8

The most accurate and time consuming of the estimates is called __ estimating

bottom-up

9

The sigma percentages are 1 Sigma = __ %,2 Sigma = __ %and 3 Sigma __ %

68.26%, 95.46%, 99.73%

10

The time an activity can be delayed without delaying the project end date is called __ __

total float

11

The earliest you can begin an activity is called the __ __, while the latest time in the network schedule that an activity can begin without impacting the late finish (LF) is called the __

early start, late start

12

Conformance to target values is defined as __, while the precision of the measurement is expressed as __ __

accuracy, standard deviation

13

The __ __ in a network diagram is the longest path through the network that produces the shortest possible completion time for the project

critical path

14

The time a project can be delayed without delaying the start of a successor project is called __ __

project float

15

The two primary schedule compression techniques are called __ and __ __

crashing, fast tracking

16

The __ __ analysis is used to build statistical models and perform what-if analysis

Monte Carlo

17

Stabilizing the number of resources working in each time period to prevent resource over-allocation is known as __ __

resource leveling

18

__ __ project management accounts for limited resources, adds duration buffers, focuses on managing the time buffer and resources

critical chain

19

__ __ describes the time an activity can be delayed before delaying the early start (ES) of a successor activity

free float

20

Higher-level summary activities that occur between milestones in a bar chart are frequently called __ __

hammock activities

21

In addition to various updates, a key output of the Control Schedule process is __ __

change request

22

An activity that has no duration is called a __

milestone

23

Computing the __ pass allows us to ascertain the critical path in the network diagram, while computing the __ pass is used to determine areas of float or slack in the network diagram

forward, backward
