This guide provides an introduction to scheduling intended for use by government program managers and industry program of project managers and their respective staffs. It is the third version of a 1986 publication prepared by Mr. David D. Acker, Mr. J. Stanley Baumgartner, and Mr. Michael B. Patterson. A second version, published in 1994, was prepared by Mr. William W. Bahnmaier and Mr. Paul T. McMahon.
This version addresses many of the topics contained in their earlier versions, especially those relating to the different types of scheduling techniques. The major difference between this and the previous versions is the treatment of scheduling as part of the acquisition process and the overall program management effort, particularly as it relates to the planning and control functions of program management. Scheduling is discussed in the context of the development of integrated master plans and schedules, the risk management process, and earned value management.
This guide is not intended as a detailed treatment of scheduling techniques. Instead, it is more of a primer on the subject, addressing the importance of scheduling and the application of basic scheduling techniques. It is a compilation of information from various sources, and hopefully will serve as a starting point for those who desire to delve deeper into the various scheduling techniques.
The proliferation of microcomputers has greatly enhanced the capability of managers at all levels to develop and analyze schedules. Chapter 9 provides an overview of the types of automated tools available and information on desirable features of scheduling software applications.
This document reflects the efforts of many people. Mr. William W. Bahnmaier , Mr. Paul T. McMahon , Lt Col. David Bachman, USAF, and Mr. John Kelley of the DAU/DSMC faculty provided invaluable guidance and advice. Mr. Gregory T. Caruth of the DAU/ DSMC Press was very helpful in the composition of the guide. Frances M. Battle, provided desktop publishing skills.

Special recognition also goes to the Institute for Defense Analysis team of Mr. Lou Simpleman, Mr. Jim Lloyd, Mr. George Tolis, Ms. Patti Phillips, Ms. Tina Higgins, and Ms. Yolanda Prescott, who wrote, edited, and prepared the major portions of the text.
