Finish On or Before: A restriction you impose on an activity that limits the latest time it can be finished. 3. the early and late dates are not set equal to each other. The finish on or after constraint reduces float to coordinate parallel activities. The finish on or before constraint affects only late dates. Proprietary & Confidential 28 A Knowledge Company . 2. Finish On: A restriction you place on an activity by imposing a finish date. The early date is moved forward to the next valid work time and the late date is moved back (earlier) to the first valid work time. Use this constraint to ensure that the late finish date of an activity is not later than the date you impose. This can cause negative float in the schedule. ensuring that the finish of an activity is not scheduled before the specified date. Mandatory Constraints Mandatory Start / Finish: A restriction you impose on an activity that sets its early and late start/finish dates equal to the date you specify. This constraint sets the early dates as late as possible without affecting successor activities. A mandatory early start/finish date could affect the late dates for all activities that lead to the constrained activity and all early dates for the activities that lead from the constrained activity. It is usually applied to activities that have few predecessors that must finish before the next phase of a project. Note: When mandatory constraints are placed on calendar non-work time. although the network logic may cause the early start to occur later. Late Constraint As Late As Possible: A restriction you impose on an activity or work unit with positive float that allows it to start as late as possible without delaying its successors.PRIMAVERA ENTERPRISE FOR CONSTRUCTION (P3e/c) or after constraint cannot be earlier than the imposed date. The mandatory early start/finish date is used regardless of its effect on network logic. The finish on constraint can delay an early finish or accelerate a late finish to satisfy the imposed date.
