In its simplest form the calculation of the schedule is a matter of establishing a start date for the project and adding the durations of the activities in the schedule, being careful not to include the activities that are scheduled to be done in parallel with other activities. The schedule consists of determining the start and finish dates for each of the activities and can be calculated with or without considering the influences of resources or the lack of them. The scheduling of each activity must consider the logic of the schedule. That is, the scheduling of each activity depends on the activities that it depends on for its schedule. These logical relationships are best seen in the "precedence diagram".
