During project setup phase It is essential to establish and analyse a timeline that guides the entire team in delivering the project on time. Thus the prospective Lead Appointed Party must communicate with the prospective Appointed Parties to provide a project programme in line with the Appointing Party requirements.
The timetable (Programme) provided at the tender response stage should outline milestones that must be met to deliver the project on time. The schedule must specify which tasks and activities should be completed, which resources should be used and when projects should be finished. The schedule shall be developed throughout the project and used as a management tool for the execution, monitoring and management of a project.
A developed project plan should identify project phases and activities assigned to team members with milestones to allow measurement of key deliverables versus timeline to track work progress.
