A construction project scheduling is a written or graphical representation of how the project will be completed and constructed. A written statement may be a description. It may be a written description. It may be depicted as a bar chart schedule or a CPM schedule.
Planning and scheduling are often thought of as synonyms. However, they are not. Scheduling is only one part of the planning process. The word planning is used in many different ways and in many different contexts. The most common we hear about is financial planning, such as retirement planning or college education planning. While these plans may include other aspects (what to do in retirement, which colleges to choose for your children, etc.), the primary focus is financial.
