Q&A: What are the Original Lag and Remaining Lag for a Resource in P6?

Written on . By CPM Solutions

The Original and Remaining lag fields are manually entered when it is known that a resource will not be available or is not needed when the activity starts. By typing in a lag, you delay the start of the resource by that amount of lag.

Original Lag is what was typed in and is used when there is no progress on the activity.

Remaining Lag is the lag that is leftover, after the activity has started.  Remaining lag is automatically reduced once the activity is started and the Data Date is moved forward with Statusing.
