How to build a work schedule
Start by defining the steps. Identify all the tasks necessary to complete the project. Write down all the tasks. Enter the results that must be achieved in the "Work Breakdown Structure" field. The program should show a chain of actions to perform the work. If the information is not enough, you will have to go to the databases to collect the missing data. However, at this stage you can limit yourself to the information that you already have or use WBS.
Now define a sequence of actions with dependencies. All dependencies of related tasks will be identified. All this is fixed by the program in the work schedule. Analyze each of the tasks to identify the types of dependencies from the additional tasks for the project.
At this stage, resources are identified and their availability for the project. Note that in reality, not all the possibilities for using them can be used, just as in the program not all members of the group. Assign resources for each individual task (for example, using the Gantt chart). At the lowest point of WBS, click on the list in the "Resource Names" column and select the possible member of the group. Avoid adding more than one resource for each task. The schedule of work, of course, will be longer, but using it, you will be able to better control the tracking of resources in the course of the project.
At this stage, the duration of the action of each of the tasks (i.e., the number of working periods necessary to implement it) is evaluated. Working in Microsoft Project, the duration can be set in months, weeks and days. Distinguish between types of duration, as the choice of each of them will subsequently affect the availability of resources and projected completion dates for the project.
At the last stage, the work schedule is analyzed and all sequences, durations and mandatory scheduling limitations are considered. The goal of the phase will be to check the correctness of the schedule. Check if the duration is correct. Correct the allocation of resources (preferably manually) for realistic execution of tasks for the project.
