The correctness, accuracy, completeness, and usefulness of a Project Schedule depend heavily on its quality. A good quality brings about project success. Good quality gives project managers a good handle on what needs doing. As such, he gets good results. Conversely, the consequences of a poor-quality schedule are practically endless. If unaddressed, the schedule remains counter-intuitive, disconnected, or disjointed, resulting in poor project control. Low quality produces a bad schedule not fit for quantitative risk analysis, making incorrect probability calculations. It will also likely generate a flawed critical path, influencing the project to focus on the wrong activities and priorities.
