is: Develop Project Schedule
A project schedule designates work to be done
and specifies deadlines for completing tasks and deliverables. The
project schedule depicts:
- Time (duration) estimates for all project tasks
- Start and finish dates for the tasks
- Names of staff resources assigned to complete the tasks
- Sequence of tasks
A major component of a project schedule is a work breakdown
structure (WBS). The project schedule is constructed
to reflect the work breakdown structure.
The project manager uses the schedule to help
plan, execute and control project tasks and to track and
monitor the progress of the project.
The project schedule defines timelines for key deliverables
and sets expectations for project progress and completion.
