Why Should Activities Be Linked with Each Other?
Two or more activities are set in one of four possible ways. You use this link to specify that both operations were planned in a particular sequence and are to be carried out in the same way. Further details can be found at Wikipedia.
- End to Start: Normal sequence
- Start to Start: Start sequence
- End to end: End sequence
- Start to End: Jump sequence
In addition, a buffer can be specified as the duration between the linked operations. This can also be negative. The buffer is not explicitly displayed in Merlin Project in the Gantt chart, but only as a modified link line.
