This means looking at either predecessors or successors, not both at the same time. The author personally prefers dealing with predecessors. When reviewing the logic, you may look at both ends of an activity for accuracy of the logic. 3 Common scheduling errors: (a) redundant relationship; (b) logic loop 6. Implement the schedule: Implementing the schedule means taking the scheduling from paper to execution. This step is important for fulfillment of the schedule. Most importantly, the scheduler (under directions from the project manager) must choose start and finish dates within the range of the calculated dates (early and late).

As IDs for activities. Real-life projects may comprise hundreds—perhaps thousands—of activities. The ID must be chosen to follow a certain pattern consistently using alphanumeric characters. In many cases, the breakdown must be coded according to the company’s policy, where the code reflects the name of the project, location, type of activities, and so forth.
