Project Time Management

Project Time Management includes the processes required to accomplish timely completion of the project.

Project Time Management Processes
• • • • • Activity Definition – identifying the specific schedule activities that need to be performed to produce the various project deliverables. Activity Sequencing – identifying and documenting dependencies among schedule activities. Activity Resource Estimating – estimating the type and quantities of resources required to perform each schedule activity. Activity Duration Estimating – estimating the number of work periods that will be needed to complete individual schedule activities. p – analyzing y g activity y sequences, q , durations, , Schedule Development resource requirements, and schedule constraints to create the project schedule. Schedule Control – controlling changes to the project schedule schedule.

Schedule Compression • Fast tracking. such as engineering drawings. This approach can require work to be performed without completed detailed information. . A schedule compression technique in which phases or activities that normally would be done in sequence are performed f di in parallel. and increases the risk of achieving g the shortened project schedule. It results in trading g cost for time. • . ll l A An example l would ld be to construct the foundation for a building before all the architectural drawings are complete. Fast tracking can result in rework and increased risk risk. Crashing. Crashing does not always produce d a viable i bl alternative lt ti and d can result lt i in i increased d cost. Schedule compression technique in which cost and schedule tradeoffs are analyzed to determine how to obtain the greatest amount of compression for the least incremental cost.

• The critical path is then calculated calculated. .Develop Schedule . After the critical path is identified identified. resource availability is entered and the resource-limited schedule result is determined. The resulting schedule often has an altered critical path. Critical Chain Method • Critical chain is a schedule network analysis technique that modifies the project schedule to account for limited resources. • Initially.. the project schedule network diagram is built using duration estimates with required dependencies and defined constraints as inputs.

Control Schedule Schedule control is concerned with: • • • • Determining the current status of the project schedule. Control Schedule is a component of the Perform Integrated Change Control process . Influencing the factors that create schedule changes. and Managing the actual changes as they occur. Determining that the project schedule has changed.
