Giu Pels: critical path

Hi, Dimitri, I hope you are well. I’m having some issues with my project in reletation to the Critical Path.

Whenever I click on ‘show the Critical path’, it allows me to show it just on 8 tasks out of 20.

Please find attached a screenshot of my project.

I’m looking foward to hearing back from you soon.


What’s wrong on this picture?
Critical path. by definition, includes tasks with zero float, that is, those which can’t be delayed without delaying the whole project. Striped tasks on the picture have zero float. Non-striped have a few days float, so they are not on the critical path.

Thanks for getting back so quick,

what do I need to change in order to make all the task have zero float?

Pardon? Why would you want it?

Float indicates how much flexibility you have with respect to task end date. Zero float => no flexibility, task must be completed, otherwise the end date of the whole project moves forwards. Non-zero float => you may delay this task if needed.

Anyway, if you really want to have zero float in all tasks, make any of those which are not yet on the critical path. e.g. 1.3.1 Marketing, one week longer.
