What is Floating the Project?
"Floating the Project" in the construction industry refers to a project management technique concerning the manipulation of the project schedule. This term refers to the amount of time that you can delay a task, activity or a group of activities without causing an overall delay to the project schedule. It helps to understand and manage the flexibility you have on different parts of the project. In construction, adjusting the time frame of a floating project must be done carefully to ensure it doesn't impact other interlinked tasks. Good understanding and strategic use of float time can potentially save costs and ensure effective project delivery.
