How to Sequence Activities in a Project

Sequential activities are tasks or duties that must be completed, or at least started, in order. For example, if you're making spaghetti, you must first fill a pot with water, then boil the water and then add the pasta. Sequencing activities are an important part of project task management because they help you make the most out of your resources and identify critical tasks and prioritize them. An example of an Activity Sequence is the spaghetti analogy, where the necessary activities for one task can get in the way of those for another. The Precedence Diagramming Method is a method used to sequence activities for a larger-scale project.

It uses a network diagram to show the activities which must be completed, how they're connected and what sequence the work must follow. It can be broken down into a few simple steps: define activity attributes, determine constraints and keep organized and track of these details.
