Work planning and scheduling include two necessary instruments which provide work managers and performers with a complete picture of workloads and related requirements. These instruments are listed and explained in the paragraphs below:

  • Work planning spreadsheet is an electronic list of job elements (tasks, steps, activities) where all elements are recorded as a one-by-one sequence (to-do list) and described with any number of attributes, for example their costs, priorities, start dates and deadlines. Such a work planning sheet actually provides unlimited capabilities in recording and describing tasks, so scheduling (specifying tasks with setting up their start dates and deadlines) in a spreadsheet is just a small part of its functionality that can provide you with really all-round planning and scheduling through listing multiple parameters like resources, milestones, job statuses etc. 
  • Work planning schedule is an instrument which mainly shows time parameters of tasks and activities. Classic scheduling means using a time grid which is a special calendar allowing visual depicting the tasks on time grid of appropriate scale. This method clearly shows durations of tasks and their places on a time map of a project. This kind of instrument has a variety of appearances where one is called a chronological line, or just a “timeline” that represents chronology of job components and business events.
