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.

Hi guys based on your experienxe is it necessary to connect all activities with relationships ? What is the correct level of schedule we can have a complete relationships. In my experiences it’s not easy, when the activities level is very detail there will look very complex and complicated but when the activities level too general the ralationships may be not accurate.

Tq before

Hi rahmat

Answers to your inquiries are as under;

Yes, without relationship the activities look like wandering and you may not judged the dependency of the activities. So it is essential to connect the activities by proper linking.

In high detailed schedule complexity and complication are general things but in each case the relationships are essential to make the schedule logically.

  1. Yes.
  2. Defining Activities (for turnaround planning)
I prefer high detail for better accuracy in estimating and tracking and tighter scheduling. The complexity of the schedule can be scaled by distributing summary level schedules based upon the details.
