Video: The Four Relationship Types
Hi! In this lesson, we’re going to have a look at the four different relationship types. I’ve got a slideshow that I can talk you through or hopefully make it a little bit simpler.
Activity A has start and finish determine by its duration. When Activity A finishes, Activity B must start. This is known as a finish-to-start relationship and it’s the default relationship type for most software planning tools. When Activity B starts, Activity C must start. This is known as a start-to-start relationship type. When Activity C finishes, Activity D must finish. This is known as a finish-to-finish relationship. The last one, when Activity Y starts, Activity X must finish. This is the least common used. Finish to start (FF), start to start (SS), finish to finish (FF), and start to finish (SF).
In the next lesson, we’ll look at creating and amending relationship types.
