Dependency-SF

The start-to-finish logical dependency between activities (courtesy of Wikipedia).

The start-to-finish relationship between two activities is one where the successor task cannot finish until the logical predecessor starts. This is perhaps the most counter-intuative of the four order relationships. It is rare, occurring less than 1% of the time.[1]

ExamplesEdit

  • Studying right up until the teacher says to put away all materials so the test can begin. (The start of the test, the successor task, forces the end of the studying, the predecessor task.)[2]
  • The installation of a new version of the software will finish the use of the older version (at least by those users).
  • A babysitter cannot finish the job until the parents return.
