In its broadest sense, the term ‘schedule’ simply refers to a list. That can be a list of items, activities, events, information and so on. Sometimes schedules will also include dates, such as the dates on which activities listed in the schedule will be carried out (in the construction industry this is more commonly referred to as a programme). Schedules may be appended to other documents, such as contracts.
A project schedule is a graphic presentation of all activities in a project required to produce the output. Gantt Charts, Network Diagrams, CPM and PERT techniques can be used to create the project schedules.
As construction projects and completed buildings are complicated, they take considerable organisation and can involve a number of different types of schedule. Articles on Designing Buildings Wiki about some of the more commonly used schedules include:
- Activity schedule.
- Call-off schedule.
- Contractor's working schedule.
- Information release schedule.
- Information request schedule.
- Payment schedule.
- Schedule of condition.
- Schedule of accommodation.
- Schedule of defects.
- Schedule of dilapidations.
- Schedule of drawings.
- Schedule of rates.
- Schedule of services.
- Schedule of tender adjustments.
- Schedule of work.
- Scott schedule.
- Window and door schedules
