Time tracking for projects


Time Tracking and Project Management are two closely interrelated practices, as time tracking is an indispensable component of project controlling making sure that project is on the right course. Time tracking in a project is based on the following assumptions:

  • Project Schedule – general timeline of project deliverables and milestones, defining the main project timeframe and constraints (due dates). Sometimes, any significant non-meeting of the constraints provided by the project schedule is a critical fail;
  • Project Plan – estimated durations of all project tasks, stages, phases, and amount of working hours assigned to manpower and equipment to complete each of the tasks. Non-meeting of time constraints for matters listed in the working plan may cause severe delay on the major project schedule, and finally postpone (or even collapse) the entire project;
  • Requirements on accuracy – sometimes, due to a high allowance of risks, some of tasks may be attributed to have certain time lags (safe level of procrastination);
