Project scheduling
A schedule is a listing of a project’s milestones, activities, and deliverables, usually with intended start and finish dates. Those items are often estimated by other information included in the project schedule of resource allocation, budget, task duration, and linkages of dependencies and scheduled events. Project scheduling is a mechanism to communicate what tasks need to get done and which organizational resources will be allocated to complete those tasks in what time frame. It is the one of the most difficult job for a project manager. Managers estimate time and resources required to complete activities and organize them into coherent sequence.

Project scheduling involves:

  • Split project into tasks and estimate time and resources required to complete each task.
  • Organize tasks concurrently to make optimal use of workforce.
  • Minimize task dependencies to avoid delays caused by one task waiting for another to complete.
  • It‘s Dependent on project managers intuition and experience.
  • Project scheduling involves preparing various graphical representations showing project activities, their duration and staffing.

  • Estimating the difficulty of problems and hence the cost of developing a solution is hard.
  • Productivity is not proportional to the number of people working on a task.
  • Adding people to a late project makes it later because of communication overheads.
  • The unexpected always happens. Always allow contingency in planning.
