Introduction to Planning and Scheduling

Construction project planning is a method of determining “What” is going to be done, “How” things are going to be done, “Who” will be doing activities and “How much” activities will cost.
When projects are simple, consisting of a few defined activities, it might be possible for a single person to grasp the total construction effort with little difficulty. Unfortunately, most projects for which formal plans are prepared to tend to be defined with dozens or even hundreds or thousands of activities: the larger the project, the greater the number of activities and higher the level of detail managers have to handle.

When a project plan consists of numerous activities, it is often advisable to organize the activities in some way to allow communication of plan information to others and to maintain an understanding of the various aspects of the project. While there are many ways that a plan can be organized, one common practice is the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS).
