Creating a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) lists the tasks needed to complete a project but does not indicate the duration or timing of these tasks. This lesson covers the steps to develop a comprehensive project schedule from your WBS.

Key topics covered include:

  1. Transitioning from WBS to Schedule: Understanding that while a WBS identifies tasks, it does not provide the details needed for scheduling. You must convert the list of tasks into a proper schedule.
  2. Creating a Project Schedule: Ensuring tasks are completed in the correct order by adding links or dependencies between tasks. For example, "Build Specs" must be completed before "Review Specs" can begin.
  3. Types of Dependencies: Knowing that the most common type of dependency is "finish to start," where one task must finish before the next can start.
  4. Estimating Task Durations: Estimating how long each task will take to help determine the overall project timeline.
  1. Assigning Tasks: Assigning tasks to project team members, considering estimated time and resource availability to calculate task completion times.
  2. Adjusting the Schedule: Taking into account limitations such as time constraints and resource availability. If the initial schedule is not feasible, adjustments can be made to shorten the timeline, save money, or balance the workload.
  3. Importance of the Schedule: Recognising that the project schedule is crucial as it dictates how long the project will take and when resources are needed.

By the end of this lesson, you will be able to develop a detailed project schedule from your WBS, ensuring tasks are completed in the correct order and within the required timeframes. This schedule will help manage your project effectively and allocate resources efficiently.
