A project is a collaboration to plan and achieve a particular aim. Project involves several tasks to be completed from start to the final aim of project completion. A schedule of tasks is developed in the planning phase by the project planning and scheduling team that clearly states the various project milestones and activities in detail from project start to project finish. The quality of the schedule generated from Primavera P6, one of the mostly used software for Project planning, and scheduling should confirm with industry standards as in the western countries. Lack of the knowledge of various aspects of schedule development often results in a schedule which is not understandable by the majority of people involved in the project and hence not useable. The ignorance on the part of scheduler generally results in such type of schedule which is not understandable by other people, clients working on site. So, it is an effort by the Author to demonstrate and improvise on the schedule development by highlighting various fields that are often ignored in the development of a good construction schedule. Not many comprehensive studies have been done on the significance of Activity ID and Description in mid-sized project schedules, in India [1] [6]. The Author has taken a step to explain their importance in detail.
