  1. Dependency

    In a project network, a dependency is a link amongst a project's terminal elements. There are four kinds of dependencies with respect to ordering terminal elements: ⁕Finish to start ⁕A FS B = B can't start before A is finished ⁕ ⁕ FS ⁕Finish to finish ⁕A FF B = B can't finish before A is finished ⁕ ⁕ FF ⁕Start to start. ⁕A SS B = B can't start before A starts ⁕ ⁕ SS ⁕Start to finish ⁕A SF B = B can't finish before A starts ⁕ ⁕ SF Finish-to-start is considered a "natural dependency" whereas all the others are constraints imposed by the scheduler to reflect resource constraints or preferential dependencies. SF is rarely used, and should generally be avoided. There are three kinds of dependencies with respect to the reason for the existence of dependency: ⁕Causal ⁕It is impossible to edit a text before it is written ⁕It is illogical to pour concrete before you dig the foundations of a building ⁕Resource constraints ⁕It is logically possible to paint four walls in a room simultaneously but there is only one painter
