In investigating and understanding the nature and needs of projects, it is essential to recognize that they go through progressive periods during their life span. The label "project life cycle" typically used misrepresents this progression. My concern with the term "cycle" is that it implies "over and over" whereas one of the essential attributes of a project, as I described earlier, is its unique, non-repetitive nature. In addressing this subject I have elected to retain enough generic nature to make the discussion meaningful for project management as a profession, or at least as a discipline, rather than just someone's livelihood.

How to Develop Your Project’s Schedule
Project management involves creating and maintaining your project’s schedule. Developing a project schedule requires the combination of activities, resources, and activity-performance sequences that gives you the greatest chance of meeting your client’s expectations with the least amount of risk.
After you specify your project’s activities, take the following steps to develop an initial project schedule:
Identify immediate predecessors for all activities.
Immediate predecessors define the structure of your network diagram.
Determine the personnel and nonpersonnel resources required for all activities.
The type, amount, and availability of resources affect how long you need to perform each activity.
Estimate durations for all activities.
See the section “Estimating Activity Duration” for details on how to do so.
Identify all intermediate and final dates that must be met.
These dates define the criteria that your schedule must meet.
Identify all activities or milestones outside your project that affect your project’s activities.
After you identify these external activities and milestones, you can set up the appropriate dependencies between them and your project’s activities and milestones.
Draw your network diagram.
Use the network diagram to determine what schedules your project can achieve.
Analyze your project’s network diagram to identity all critical paths and their lengths and to identify the slack times of noncritical paths.
This information helps you choose which project activities to monitor and how often to monitor them. It also suggests strategies for getting back on track if you encounter unexpected schedule delays.
