Revising the Schedule to Complete on Time and on Budget

After you have determined that your plan is encountering unfavorable variances, you have to do something about it. If the project is in trouble, it's important to remember one thing: Use the plan to manage the project. Don't deviate from the plan; change it! Depending on the type of problem you are having, there are different strategies you'll need to employ to get your plan back on track. The bottom line is that something needs to change if you still plan to deliver on time and on budget with high quality and all expectations met.

Project provides many tools to help you revise your schedule, but first you have to know what will work for you, on this project, in your particular situation.
