Schedules – who can set them. Clients or the programmers who do the work. Does putting multiple programmers reduce schedules. Do clients know how to give schedules. Do they think that since they gave the project, they can set the deadlines. If we can’t meet their schedules, then what to do. Do we pay them back and lose a client.  Do we try meeting their schedules somehow.

 

Schedules should take into consideration different causes of delay.

  • Act of God
  • Natural disasters or human tragedies
  • Device failures
  • Cable issues
  • Programming issues

If its client’s issue, how do we resolve it and avoid paying penalty for the delays. Does documentation like site reports help.

If its the programmer’s issue, how do we resolve it and avoid paying penalty for the delays. Do we give a discount, pay penalties or lose the project altogether.

Schedules should contain start and end date, the total hours per day and the deliverables.

Please share your comments when you have not a project deadlines.
