Float

Float, or slack time, is the amount of time that a task in a project schedule can be delayed without affecting the completion time of the overall project.

Total float is the total amount of float in a project schedule (i.e. the sum of the float for all tasks) and represents the total 'wasted time'.

Load balancing is the shuffling of tasks to try and minimize the total float.
