Activity Attributes

Activity attributes describe the characteristics of the activities and are an extension of the activity list. Activity attributes will change over the life of the project as more information is known. In the early stages of the project, activity attributes might include the activity ID, the WBS identification code it's associated with, and the activity name. As you progress through the project and complete other Planning processes, you might add predecessor and successor activities, logical relationships, leads and lags, resource requirements, and constraints and assumptions associated with the activity. We'll cover these topics throughout the remainder of this chapter.

*The activity attributes are used as in input to the Develop Schedule process that we'll talk about in the section "Developing the Project Schedule" later in this chapter.
