    Hi Can someone please clarify me on what is Sub network or fragment network templates? when they are used?
    what is Discretionary Dependency??
    =================================================================
    Can someone please help me understand, the answer for following question...

    Q. 150: A project is delivered per the contract by the project team; however, the customer is not happy. The customer feels that the deliverable is far below his expectation in terms of quality and functionality and has some serious defects. What should the Project Manager do in this situation?

    Talk to the project sponsor to discuss the issue
    >>Proceed to project closure activity
    Discuss the issues with customer and find ways to resolve the same
    Brainstorm with technical experts, stakeholders, and team members to understand issues in the project

    Sub network or fragment network is the subdivision of entire project network diagram. And this part can be taken as subproject. For example in the given project lifecylce one of the phases or the work packages is a huge activity, this can be managed as a sub project. And this will be part of the entire project network diagram and called be called as sub network.

    Discretionary dependency is a one of the types of dependencies among four. Here the sequence of activities can be done in multiple ways and you are having options. And this is also called as soft/preferred logic. For example if you want to train the operation team about the project details it can be done once the project is over or during the project stage itself. It depends on the discrete of the situation and logistic availability.

    The answer for Q 150 is close the project. Because the handover has already happened and before the handover, the sign off happens from the customer as per contract which is a legal document.
