The different types of activities are relevant to scheduling and forms of changing and crashing (accelerating) a schedule:

Contents

[edit] Resource-dependent activities

  • Duration can be changed.
  • The duration of the activity can be halved if the resources are doubled (experienced employees).
  • Examples: programming, digging drawing work
  • Speed up: add more people

[edit] Process-dependent activities

  • Activities where the duration is determined by a process that must be implemented to achieve the desired result
  • Characterized by that it can't be rushed
  • Examples: pregnancy, curing of concrete, training and education of employees
  • Speed up example: Difficult, in some cases through e.g. change of equipment

[edit] Procedure-dependent activities

  • Activities where a certain procedure must be followed
  • The uncertainty related to the outcome of the procedure.
  • Examples: steering committee meetings, consultation of stakeholders
  • Speed up example: Ebola and the change on regulation

[edit] Problem-dependent activities

  • Activities to solve a problem.
  • Innovation is paramount. Can be difficult to estimate the duration
  • Examples: design tasks, development, creative tasks
  • Speed up example: difficult, through intermediary deadlines or forcing an end - 'time boxing'
