Overview

The Driving Path Widget locates all of the predecessor tasks that drive a specific task’s schedule

Have you ever looked at a long list of predecessor tasks in a project and wondered which one is causing the schedule delay? With the Driving Path Widget, you will stop wasting time manually checking tasks to identify a path of predecessors that determine any given task’s schedule. Just select a task and push the "Driving Path" toolbar button.

All dependency types (including lags) and constraint dates are considered in the evaluation. In addition to the driving path, all other non-driving paths of predecessors are also indentified, so all potential driving paths are visible.



The Driving Path Widget displays tasks highlighted in green as the driving path to the selected task. Tasks highlighted in gray are the non-driving predecessors.

Benefits
  • Clearly visualize the "critical path" that drives the schedule of any selected task
  • Navigate through the driving path by using the "Go To Driving Task" form
  • Easily filter the driving tasks to the selected task in your project.
  • Quickly discern which predecessors are driving any of the tasks in the project


The Driving Path Widget provides filtering options and usage settings to help focus your analysis.
