||This project milestone
report is an example of what an aerospace company might use to
present project completion status. Project task milestones
are shown along with task status and task percent complete.
Baseline and current status are shown.
scheduling refers to an original project schedule. When
first planning the project, the project manager will come up
with an original schedule. In many cases, the project
manager will then "fix" or "baseline" the schedule using this
original schedule. Project planning software programs
often allow the baseline to be "locked" so that changes made to
the schedule do not affect the baseline. In this way, the
project manager can always show differences in the schedule.
For example, the baseline start date might be earlier than
the current planned start date.
If significant changes have
been made to the project plan or if a project customer
changes the requirements of the project in a major way,
the project planner might use his project management
scheduling software to create a new baseline.
