L. A. Shemetkov  defined the concept of the p-length of an arbitrary finite group, generalizing the concept of the p-length of a p-solvable finite group of Hall-Higman . In this article we introduce a more general concept of thef -length of an arbitrary finite group with respect to a certain formationf, and bounds onf-lengths and p-lengths are given for arbitrary finite groups.
