Advanced Precedence Diagramming
In this chapter we introduce the so called maximal type of relationships. Maximal types of relationships were, for example, the parts of the original Method of Potential and the HMN technique, but they were not nicely treated in these early works. It was relatively hard to understand the concept, and the computational procedure was difficult. Here we present the original concept, but we slightly modify the methodology. This modification makes this section easy to understand. Constraints are also discussed in this chapter. Constraints can be used for modifying the activity early and late times without precedence relationships. This is in fact a non-network tool, which is used to modify the results gained from the calculation based on the network logic.
