Only when the link type is Hard are the times exactly the same. When the link type is Soft, there may be a time gap between the 2 jobs. In other words, the next job can start later than the link specifies.

Examples

The following are examples of possible combinations of link type and link:

EndStart and Soft - Used between operations.

EndStart and Hard - Used between setup job and process job.

StartStart and Hard - Used between several operations resources in the same operation.
