Construction scheduling is an important tool for planning, managing, and forecasting the performance of work on construction projects. Generally CPM (critical path method) schedules, or schedules depicting the project’s critical path, are prepared beginning with the baseline schedule (the initial as-planned schedule) followed by schedule updates (perhaps monthly updates) as the work progresses. Schedules identify milestone dates (such as the substantial completion date) as well as the dates and durations of construction activities / tasks.
