Match each statement with the correct term.
Don't refresh. All questions and answers are randomly picked and ordered every time you load a test.
This is a study tool. The 3 wrong answers for each question are randomly chosen from answers to other questions. So, you might find at times the answers obvious, but you will see it reenforces your understanding as you take the test each time.
1. How much time an activity can be delayed without affecting the project's finish date.
Free Float

6. Or free slackhow much time an activity can be delayed without affecting the early start date of subsequent dependent activities.
Delphi Technique
Free Float
Backward Pass
Duration Compression
7. A schedule buffer used to reduce schedule risk.
Reserve Time (Contingency)
Slack
Forward Pass
