Rolling wave programming
Programmes describe the sequence in which tasks must be carried out so that a project (or part of a project) can be completed on time. They offer a view of how the project will be divided into activities, the duration of those activities, and logic links to preceding and succeeding activities.
For more information see: Programme for building design and construction.
Rolling wave programming is a method of programme development in which the details of the programme are progressively elaborated as the project proceeds. This is based on the assumption that it will be possible to develop the plan for specific activities in more detail closer to the time that they are actually executed.
