Precedence Diagramming method

The precedence diagramming method is a project schedule network Diagramming method that uses rectangular boxes or nodes to represent boxes or nodes to represent activities and arrows to represent precedence relationships between activities.

 

This type of diagrams:

  • Always reads from.left to right.
  • Show duration only in the node.
  • May be created manually or with software
  • May report a group of related activities as an aggregate activity
  • May use all Precedence relationship types.

 

Summary activities

A summary activity is a group of related activities that, from r reporting purposes, is shown as a single aggregate activity in a bar chart or graph. It may also be called a hammock activity .

 

Some summary activities have their own internal sequence of activities but others include separate activities.

 

Conditional diagramming methods…

Activity sequence that must be revisited or repeated are called loops , while activities that will be implemented only under specific conditions are called conditional branches. A conditional Diagramming method is any network Diagramming method that allows for no sequential activities such as loops or conditional branches.

Conditional Diagramming methods vary based on the method used. The most common one are the Graphical Evaluation Review Technique (GERT) and system dynamic models.
