Schedule is the designation for a timetable or time plan, which includes a chronology of the implementation of individual activities as part of a scheduled event, usually of the project (see project schedule), or strategy. The schedule is a narrower concept than a plan.
In the schedule there are planned dates of individual activities fulfillment and key activities of the event (or plan) that are assigned to individual participants (responsible persons). Schedule is in practice usually expressed in the form of a Gantt chart. To optimize the project schedule various methods of network analysis can be used.
Use of the schedule in practice: The schedule may not be created only for long-term events, such as projects, but can generally be created for any event with a goal (such as buying a car or preparing for an audit), if necessary with the timetable (term of the action) and is to be given tasks to individual participants of the event.
