    The second task of two forced overlapping tasks can be separated into two parts. The first part is a parallel task to a portion of the first task and the second part is a continuous task to its first part.Google Scholar

    This is a special case of forced overlapping tasks: the required level of completion of the first task is 0% and the second task must start at that time.Google Scholar
