Exploring Project Schedule Management
Project schedule management implies more of personal management of the expenditure of your time, and you cannot manage and manipulate your time in the way you would a Schedule.
Schedule management in project management is about completing work from the project scope within a predicted time frame. Many things influence the project's schedule and duration, and it is the role of the project leader (or - often in large projects - the role of a specialist planner), predicting how long the project should take, depending on the size of the project.
To master project schedlue management, you must be familiar with the following six processes:
■ Create the schedule management plan
■ Define the activities
■ Sequence the activities
■ Estimate the duration of the activities
■ Develop the schedule
■ Control the schedule
These six processes are very logical:
Plan how you will manage the schedule
=> define the work to be planned
=> set the order of activities
=> do the prediction of the duration
=> the massage of the schedule
=> and control the schedule.
The schedule management process includes documentation of how you will plan, manage, and control the project to the schedule baseline and manage schedule variances.

Many project managers work on the project and hope that the project will meet the deadline, but you need to develop and follow a plan and measure progress along the way for proper schedule management and to be successful.
So, as part of the planning, you need to determine in advance what performance benchmarks will apply, how and when you will collect the data you need to assess schedule performance, how you will use the data to keep the project on track, and what you will do if any deviations occur.
