Goals are dreams with deadlines. ~ Diana Scharf

The develop schedule process is part of the PMI planning process group in the time management knowledge area. It is described in section 6.6 of the PMBOK.

It builds on the earlier time management planning processes:

Using the defined activities, required sequence and estimated durations along with information about when the resources will be available, the schedule can now be put together. A scheduling tool can help to pull all this information together into a display to be shared with the project team. This serves multiple purposes, including keeping everyone informed about when their participation is required and what their deadlines are. Once the schedule is developed, the control schedule process keeps it up-to-date.

According to the PMBOK, this activity has the following characteristics:

Inputs Tools and Templates Outputs
schedule management plan, activity list, activity attributes, project schedule network diagrams, activity resource requirements, resource calendars, activity duration estimates, project scope statement, risk register, project staff assignments, resource breakdown structure, enterprise environmental factors, organizational process assets schedule network analysis, critical path method, critical chain method, modeling techniques, leads and lags, schedule compression, scheduling tool schedule baseline, project schedule, project management plan updates, project documents updates
