Decompose the lowest elements (work packages) of your WBS into the necessary tasks (activities).
Order your tasks according to the logic of the work, and decide which can be done in parallel and which have to be done in sequence
Consider different types of task relationships
In this guided project you will learn how to build a precedence network diagram. You will start with a WBS (see Guided Project: Creating a WBS, for how to create one), and decompose the work packages (lowest elements in the WBS) into the necessary activities. You will order the activities based on the logic of the work, and decide which can be done in parallel and which have to be done in sequence, because of dependencies. You will consider the different types of task relationships and use them as necessary. You will do the task (we are using task and activity interchangeably) definition in Google docs,and the generation of the network and task relationships in scheduling tool (we will use an open source tool: Project Libre) but the concepts can be used with any other tool(s). Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
In a video that plays in a split-screen with your work area, your instructor will walk you through these steps:
Sign in your Google Drive account, or create one, open a new Google Sheet and load your project WBS
Define activities, by decomposing the lowest elements in the WBS to the necessary tasks
Order the activities and generate the Precedence Network Diagram
Enter different type of tasks in a scheduling tool (Project Libre)
Consider different task relationships
Enter your task dependencies and review your Precedence Network Diagram
Your workspace is a cloud desktop right in your browser, no download required
In a split-screen video, your instructor guides you step-by-step
The presentation was informative and good. With practical on hand it made easier
Enough info for building a simple Precedence Network Diagram.
