The Activity-on-Node (also called Precedence Diagramming Method) is a method that uses the nodes or boxes to represent activities and the arrows to show the logical dependencies between activities. The activity information is written in the nodes, it is usually numeric. Each activity has a unique number.

There are 4 relationships between activities:

  • finish-to-start,
  • start-to-start,
  • finish-to-finish,
  • start-to-finish.
The Activity-on-Node (AON) that shows which activities must be completed in order to other activities will start is called “finish-to-start”. It is the most used relationship.

This sample shows the Activity on node network diagramming method. It was created in ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software using the Seven Management and Planning Tools solution from the Management area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
