Lead is time which allow Successor Task to start before Predecessor is finished, and still keep Finish To Start relationship. I wrote about that in my Blog Post: https://ntrajkovski.com/2011/04/12/scheduling-problems-in-ms-project-2010-part-2/
Let’s see how to make it relative in MS PROJECT 2013! Let’s say that we have four Tasks in software Development:
Now suppose that I want to Start with Design after half on Analyze is done, than with Developing after half of Design is done, and with Coding after half of Developing is done. I’ll show you how to do it with Design Task, and for the other Tasks the procedure is the same:
After I repeat this steps for other two Tasks I will get:
Everything look perfect! Bu now suppose that Duration of my Tasks are, for some Reasons 6 days instead of four:
As you can see now, Design will not star after Analyze is half done, but two day before it is finished. To make sure that it will start after the Predecessor is half done I will change the Relationship for all Task like this:
After I repeat those steps for all my Tasks I’ll get:
As you can see, I got what I wanted. If I now change Duration like:
- Analyze = 2 days
- Design = 4 days
- Develop = 6 days
- Code = 2days
I will get:
As you can see, every Successor will start when Predecessor is 50% finished.
