Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Good Morning, 

I'm having issues establishing the Critical Path on my programme. I have a summary section at the top of my programme with Key Dates i.e. contract award, mobilisation, construction period, handover etc. 

The Critical Path seems to bypass my entire programme and only link these activities as critical. The only 'Critical' items on the main programme is the start milestone and completion milestone. 

Any help to get round this woul be appreciated. 

Thanks

Hello Dominic,

I suspect that the Project Completion milestone has a hard constraint date as Start On, Finish On later than the scheduled finish date of the last-in-sequence activity of the project.

Have a try by removing this constraint date and give your milestone the project last activity as a predecessor
