What is Schedule Development?


Schedule Development is a formal process of developing and approving a schedule through estimating and sequencing activities, durations and resources in accordance with their dependencies set for the current working environment (e.g. project, business workflow). This process assumes using analysis and prioritization as methods for reviewing estimates of durations, resources and activities.

An approved schedule (a time-based plan of activities) is the output of the development process. For example, in terms of project management the process results in creating a formal schedule of project activities to determine the baseline for further project time tracking. In business management the process produces an employee work schedule specifying job durations, employee shifts, rotations, fixed and flexible working hours, overtime, and other parameters.

Some uncertainty is always involved in any project or business endeavor, so the schedule development process should be reviewed regularly while the endeavor is in progress. It continues as the endeavor moves forward until further transformation and change of the schedule is unessential to the final result of the endeavor.

Regardless of the field of using the development process, schedules determine the following key data:

  • Planned start and finish dates for activities
  • Activity sequence and duration
  • Resources (employees) assigned to sequenced activities
  • Individual and group calendars.
