How much a task has been delayed within a project's schedule. Usually equivalent to the task's finish variance (the difference between baseline finish and the current finish).
If finish variance = start variance - task is usually delayed due to a predecessor.
If finish variance > start variance - task is due to take longer than planned.
If finish variance < start variance - task may be catching up on any delays.
Use the global filter 'Slipping tasks' for general slippages, AutoFilters to help find discrete ones.
