Project Management Definitions – Part 6

Gantt chart

A graphic display of schedule related information.  In of a typical bar chart, schedule activities or work breakdown structure components are listed down the left side of the charts, dates are shown across the top, an activity durations are shown as data placed horizontal bars

Grade

A category or rank used to distinguish items that have the same functional use, but do not share the same requirements for quality

Historical information

Documents and date or on prior projects including project files, records, correspondence, close contracts, and closed projects

Human resource plan

A document describing how roles and responsibilities, reporting relationships, and staffing management will be addressed and structured for the project

Imposed date

A fixed date imposed on a schedule activity or schedule milestone, you see in the form of a start no earlier than and finish no later than date

Influence diagram

This tool is a graphical representation of situations showing causal influences, time ordering of a vents, and other relationships among variables and outcomes

Inspection technique

The examining or measuring to verify whether an activity components, product, result, or service conforms to specified requirements

Invitation for bid (IFB)

Generally, this term is equivalent to request for proposal, however, is an application areas it may have an error or more specific meaning

Issue

A point or matter in question or in dispute, or appoint or matter that is not settled and is under discussion or over which there are opposing views or disagreements

Lag

This Technique is a modification of a logical relationship that directs of the lady in the successor activity

Lagged

The set amount of delay the occurs between the end of one task and the beginning of another.  Lag is built into a dependency relationship between tasks when you indicate that a certain amount of time must pass before the second task can begin.  In other words, adding lag time creates a delay between tasks

Late finish date

In the critical path method, the late as possible point in time that a schedule activity may be completed based upon the schedule network logic, the project completion date, and any constraints assigned to the schedule activities without violating a schedule constraints or delaying the project completion date.

The late finish dates are determined during the backward pass calculation of the project schedule network

Late start date

In the critical path method, the latest possible point in time to the schedule activity may begin based upon the schedule network logic, the project completion date, and any constraints assigned to the schedule activities without violating a schedule constraints or delaying the project completion date.

The late start dates are determined during the backward pass calculation of the project schedule network

Lead

A modification of a logical relationship allows an acceleration of the successor activity.  A negative lead is equivalent to a positive lag

Lessons learned

The learning gained from the process of performing the project.  Lessons learned may be identified at any point.  Also considered a project record, to be included in the lessons learned knowledge base

Lessons learned knowledge base

A store of historical information and lessons learned about both the outcomes of previous project selection decisions and previous project performance

Leveling

The calculation that modifies resource assignments for the purpose of resolving resource conflicts

Linking

To establish the connection between tasks in separately Jules so the past changes in the first schedule are reflected in the second, also to establish dependencies among project tasks

Log

A document used to record and describe all denote selected items identified during execution of a process or activity.  Usually used where the modifier, such as issue, quality control, action, or defect

Logical relationship

A dependency between two project schedule activities, or between a project schedule activity and the schedule milestone.  The four possible types of logical relationships are: finish to start; finish to finish; start to start; and start to finish
