Key Terms – Project Scheduling

Baseline Schedule

A baseline schedule is the original, approved version of the project schedule against which actual project progress is measured. It serves as a reference point for performance evaluation and enables comparison between planned and actual project timelines, costs, and deliverables.

A constraint is a factor or limitation that affects the scheduling of project activities. Constraints can be imposed by external factors, such as client requirements or contractual obligations, or internal factors, such as resource limitations or budget constraints. Managing constraints is crucial for developing a realistic project schedule.

The Critical Path Method is a project scheduling technique that identifies the longest sequence of dependent activities in a project. It determines the critical path, which represents the minimum project duration, helping in prioritizing activities and managing project timelines.

Fast tracking is a project scheduling technique that involves overlapping or executing activities in parallel to compress the project timeline. It aims to expedite project completion by reducing the overall project duration, but it can increase project risks and resource requirements.

A Gantt chart is a visual representation of a project schedule, displaying tasks, durations, and dependencies over time. It helps in planning, scheduling, and tracking project activities, providing a clear overview of the project timeline.

Lag time is the amount of time between the completion of a predecessor task and the start of its successor task. It represents a delay or waiting period required before the dependent task can begin. Lag time can be used to introduce a gap between tasks or to account for external factors or dependencies.

Lead time is the amount of time required for a task to be initiated or completed after its predecessor task. It represents the delay or advance in the start or finish of a task relative to its dependency. Lead time allows for overlap or acceleration of tasks in the project schedule.

A milestone is a significant event or accomplishment within a project that marks a key point of progress. It represents a major deliverable, achievement, or decision point and is used as a reference point to track project advancement and evaluate project success.

Resource allocation refers to the process of assigning and distributing resources, such as personnel, equipment, and materials, to specific tasks or activities within a project schedule. It ensures that the necessary resources are available at the right time and in the right quantities to support project execution.

Resource levelling is the process of adjusting project schedules to ensure optimal utilization of resources. It involves analyzing resource availability, resolving resource conflicts, and making adjustments to the project timeline to balance resource demand and supply.

A schedule baseline is the approved version of the project schedule that serves as a reference point for performance measurement and control. It represents the original planned start and finish dates of tasks and is used to compare and track actual progress during project execution.

Schedule compression is a technique used to shorten the project duration without compromising project objectives. It involves various strategies, such as fast tracking, crashing, or re-sequencing tasks, to expedite project completion and meet tight deadlines.

A schedule network diagram is a graphical representation of project activities and their interdependencies. It uses nodes to represent tasks and arrows to depict dependencies, showing the sequence and logical relationships between activities in the project schedule.

The Schedule Performance Index is a project management metric used to measure the efficiency of schedule performance. It is calculated by dividing the earned value (EV) by the planned value (PV) and indicates whether the project is ahead of, behind, or on schedule.

Schedule risk analysis is the process of assessing and quantifying the uncertainties and risks that may impact the project schedule. It involves identifying potential risks, analyzing their potential impact on the schedule, and developing contingency plans or mitigation strategies to minimize schedule disruptions.
