ITM 750- Project Time Management
Project Time Management: involves the processes required to ensure timely
completion of a project, there’s 7 main processes involved in project time
management:
1. Planning schedule management involves determining the policies,
procedures, and documentation that will be used for planning, executing, and
controlling the project schedule, the main output of this process is a schedule
management plan, the plan usually includes the following:
Project schedule development
Level of accuracy and units of measure
Control thresholds
Rules of performance measurement
Reporting formats
Process descriptions
2. Defining activities involves identifying the specific activities that the project
team members and stakeholders must perform to product the project
deliverables
Activity/task: an element of work normally found on the work
breakdown schedule (WBS) that has expected duration, cost, and
resource requirements. The main outputs of this process are an
activity list, activity attributes; a milestone list and project
management plans updates.
Activity list: a tabulation of activities to be included on a project
schedule, the list should include the activity name, an activity
identifier or number, and a brief description of the activity
Activity attributes: provide schedule-related information about
each activity, such as predecessors, successors, logical
relationships, lead and lags, resource requirements, constraints,
impose dates and assumptions related to the activity
Milestone: on a project is a significant event that normally has no
duration, it often takes several activities and a lot of work to
complete a milestone, but the milestone itself is a market to help in
identifying necessary activities.
3. Sequencing activities involves identifying and documenting the relationships
between project activities. The main outputs of this process include project
schedule network diagrams and project documents updates.
Dependency/relationship: pertains to the sequencing of project
activities or task., there are 3 basic reasons for identifying
dependencies among project activities:
o Mandatory dependencies: are inherent in the nature of the
work being performed on a project. They are sometimes
referred to as hard logic, ex. You cant test code until after its
