Interfering Float Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
interfering_float = Total Float-Free Float
IF = TF0-FF0
This formula uses 2 Variables
Variables Used
Total Float- Total float is the period by which an activity can shift its timing without affecting the relevant schedule completion date.
Free Float- Free float is the period by which an activity can shift in its timing without affecting the Early Start of any succeeding activity or event.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Total Float: 18 --> No Conversion Required
Free Float: 0 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
IF = TF0-FF0 --> 18-(0)
Evaluating ... ...
IF = 18
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
18 Second -->0.000208333333333333 Day (Check conversion here)
FINAL ANSWER
0.000208333333333333 Day <-- IF

IF = TF0-FF0

What is Criticality and Critical Activity?

The degree of total float gives idea about criticality. If float is positive, the activity needs attention but has some flexibility. It is called subcritical activity. If the float is negative, it is super critical activity and requires very special attention. If float is 0, it is critical activity and extra attention is needed and there is no freedom of action.

How to Calculate Interfering Float?

Interfering Float calculator uses interfering_float = Total Float-Free Float to calculate the IF, The Interfering Float is the amount of time a schedule activity can be delayed or extended from its early start date without delaying the project finish date. However, it should be understood that delaying an activity into interfering float will delay the start of one or more following non-critical activities. IF and is denoted by IF symbol.

How to calculate Interfering Float using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Interfering Float, enter Total Float (TF0) and Free Float (FF0) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Interfering Float calculation can be explained with given input values -> 0.000208 = 18-(0).

FAQ

What is Interfering Float?
The Interfering Float is the amount of time a schedule activity can be delayed or extended from its early start date without delaying the project finish date. However, it should be understood that delaying an activity into interfering float will delay the start of one or more following non-critical activities and is represented as IF = TF0-FF0 or interfering_float = Total Float-Free Float. Total float is the period by which an activity can shift its timing without affecting the relevant schedule completion date and Free float is the period by which an activity can shift in its timing without affecting the Early Start of any succeeding activity or event.
How to calculate Interfering Float?
The Interfering Float is the amount of time a schedule activity can be delayed or extended from its early start date without delaying the project finish date. However, it should be understood that delaying an activity into interfering float will delay the start of one or more following non-critical activities is calculated using interfering_float = Total Float-Free Float. To calculate Interfering Float, you need Total Float (TF0) and Free Float (FF0). With our tool, you need to enter the respective value for Total Float and Free Float and hit the calculate button. You can also select the units (if any) for Input(s) and the Output as well.
