Form the concrete column. 2. Install the steel reinforcement (commonly known as rebar). 3. Place the concrete. 4.

You can easily tell the status (percent complete) of a minor activity, such as Place Concrete for Spread Footings No. 23, better and more objectively than you can for a major activity, such as Building Foundation. The main disadvantage of having too many activities is the additional administrative work involved. However, this disadvantage may not be as important with the use of computers. Furthermore, you can roll up a group of activities into a major activity, as discussed in Chapter 3. Factors that should be considered in breaking down the project into individual activities for better control are the following: 1.

These nodes represent events: an event is a point in time when an activity starts or ends.
