Figure 4A.1, Project Properties, depicts entering information about the
project file in the Project Information Project Properties window. Entering
information about the project is important to communicate to project
members and to others in the organization the name of who is responsible for the project file.
Figure 4A.2, Project Information, depicts the entry of the start date for the project. Students have to
decide if they want to schedule from the project start date for from
the project finish date. If they schedule from the project start date
and the calculated finish date is earlier than the project due date,
the project has slack or float. If they schedule from the finish date
and start on the calculated start date, there is no time in the schedule for any delays. If the project
is delayed, other tasks have to be fast-tracked in order to finish by the project finish date.
Figure 4A.3, Project summary Task, depicts the summary
