Dependency: Dependencies in a project are the relationships between activities, whereby one activity
must do something (finish-to-start) before another activity can do something (start-to-finish).


Watch the first three minutes of this video. The video covers the four main types of dependencies.

  • Finish to Start
  • Start to Start
  • Start to Finish
  • Finish to Finish

Did you notice how the arrow "defines" the dependency?

Share examples of two types of dependencies. Post your comment below and then look on the course feed page to see what others have posted.

For example:

  • Start-finish: When building a house, the roof trusses must be in place before the roof covering can be fixed.
