What’s A Schedule Baseline & How Do I Make One?

Creating a baseline schedule is a key part of project planning. It is used to measure performance by reporting on schedule variance and to compare where you planned to be at a certain time in the project against where the data shows you actually are. The schedule baseline is a way to capture this finalized schedule and use it as a benchmark to measure your progress in executing the project. With ProjectManager, you can set a schedule baseline with your Gantt chart and track your performance compared to your baseline. Projects rarely go by without issues, and these can have a major impact on the schedule.

To stay on track, it is important to have a baseline schedule, which is related to the project plan and includes business assets and resources. To make a schedule, it is necessary to identify tasks and use them correctly.
