Keywords:  task, dirks, deliverable, workplan, wbs
an individual task needed for the completion of a project. It is the smallest, discreet block of time accounted for in the WBS.
The main business or undertaking engaged in by an individual, alone or with others. Activities include: work and work-related, school, shopping, personal business, preparing a meal, cleaning the home, athletics/ exercise, visiting, etc. Activities have the following associated attributes: type, duration, start time, end time, location, and mode of travel to get to the activity location (in the case of an activity that takes place at a location that is different from the previous activity). Participation in activities at different locations is the underlying reason for trip-making. Trip purpose is associated with the main activity type at the destination, for those activities requiring a trip.
In CPM terminology, a task or item of work that must be performed in order to complete a project.
An effective concentration adjusted to take into account the non-ideality of the solution.
Measure of the effective concentration of a chemical in the gas or liquid phase. The activity is usually less than the mass concentration, from which it differs due to the nonideal nature of gases and solutions. In the limit of very dilute mixtures, the activity is the same as the concentration for liquid solutions, or the partial pressure for gases. The activity coefficient, usually denoted by γ or , is the ratio of the activity to the actual physical concentration.
the effective amount of a free ion in solution. The amount and type of other ions in the solution influence the chemical effectiveness of an ion, so that varying the solution composition makes a fixed concentration of a given ion more or less "active". In dilute solutions, ionic activity and concentration are practically identical, but in solutions containing many ions, activity may differ from concentration. Ionic activity, not concentration, determines both the rate and the extent of chemical reactions.
The state or quality of being active; nimbleness; agility; vigorous action or operation; energy; active force; as, an increasing variety of human activities.
The discrete, specific actions or sets of actions that answer the question: "How will a project reach the objective?" Each activity should start with a verb – e.g., conduct four training courses.
A measure, course of action, or treatment to: directly or indirectly produce, enhance, or maintain forest and rangeland outputs; or achieve environmental quality objectives.
In adsorption chromatography, this is the relative strength of the surface of the packing. For silica gel, the more exposed the silanol groups, the more active the surface. Activity can be controlled by adding water or another polar modifier, which is hydrogen bonded to the active sites, thereby reducing the surface activity.
In ADSORPTION CHROMATOGRAPHY, the relative strength of the surface of the packing material. There are ways, which vary as to the nature of the packing material itself, to modify and control the activity of this surface.
a building block of a BPEL script
a posting for which a student has to post a reply before he can see the replies of the other students in the class
The BPEL language includes XML programming statements that enable developers to build robust processes. These statements are called activities and can be categorized as follows: Communication activities, such as receive, reply, and invoke, which enable clients and Web services to communicate by exchanging messages. Event-driven activities such as pick, onMessage, and onAlarm are also included in this category. Control activities, such as while, switch, sequence, flow, and wait, which control how the business process flow is executed. Fault activities, such as throw, terminate, catch, catchall, and compensate, which define how to handle faults that occur during processing.
