convergent point

convergent point - 1. In production, an operation in a production process in which multiple materials, parts or components are combined into a single component. An assembly operation is an example of a convergent point.

Usage: Convergent points are common in an A-plant and are usually used as control points.

See:A-plant, control point

  1. In projects, a task where two or more proceeding paths must be completed prior to the succeeding task starting.

Usage: When a noncritical path merges with the critical chain a feeding buffer is inserted on the noncritical path where it converges with the critical chain. This buffer reduces the likelihood that the noncritical path may become the critical chain.

See: feeding buffer, integration point.
