“Lag Time” represents the number of days that must elapse after a predecessor task is completed before its successor may be started. For instance, if task 1 (the predecessor) is to apply the 1st coat of paint on a wall and task 2 (the successor) is to apply the 2nd coat of paint, a lag […]
A “Finish-to-Start” mandatory dependency means that a predecessor task must be set to completed before its successor may be started. If a lag time is also provided on the “Finish-to-Start” mandatory dependency, that time will need to elapse (after the predecessor has been set to completed) before the successor task may be started.
