1) What is the difference between a task dependency and a task constraint?
A dependency task is dependent on relevant task as one finishes, the other starts, a correlation on the other hand is based on correlation and not on completion or start of another task.
2) Give a real-world situation when you might used the following task constraints
a) Start No Earlier Than
A large company should give constrains so that the set budget is achieve.
b) Start No Later Than
Resources requisitioned ahead of a given date might need to be purchased at a certain time hence have to work with the planned date.
c) Finish No Later Than
In the event of a birthday project we have to set so as it does not finish later than the given date
d) Finish No Earlier Than
If a project is to be rolled over, an earlier date ensures that the project is reviewed before launch
e) Must Finish On
A project that will determine set goals such as launching a company
f) Must Start On
If the project has a set time limit hence has to start on the given date meaning that there is need to utilize the task before
g) As Late As Possible
For instance an employee is paid but will perform if under pressure hence will be better if starts work late to get most out of it.
3) What is the importance of a baseline?
A baseline gives the progress ongoing with details on what the project has had since it began.
