The results of our analysis of early and late start are shown in Table 3-16. But to get to this result and see how we got there, we need to establish some definitions and basic rules.

ES (Early Start): This is the earliest we can start a given task.

EF (Early Finish): This is the earliest we can finish the given task given an early start.

LS (Late Start): This is the latest we can start the task without delaying the whole project.

LF( Late Finish): This is the latest we can finish the task given a late start.

Slack: The difference between the late finish and the earliest finish.
