  • Determining activity times & costs 
  • Estimating material & worker requirements
  • Determining critical activities

What are the project scheduling techniques?

The Project Management is a management system that aims to results.The goal of a project can only be reached through precise scheduling techniques that take into account all various constraints such as time and economic resources. 

Techniques such as PERT (Program Evaluation and Review Technique), CPM (Critical Path Method) and Gantt are the most used to plan into details a project, prevent uncertainties and avoid risk. These three techniques complete each other and offer a wide range of scenarios that could occur during the development of a project. 

The aim of scheduling techniques is to reach the goal on time without wasting precious and limited resources. On the other hand, it’s an important tool to prevent in advance future situations and to promptly identify future issues that can compromise the success of the project. Thought the use of these techniques all the single steps of a project are defined in advance, the goals are clear and the resources are properly allocated.
