A project’s schedule or plan is essentially a model that you construct of some aspects of a project you are anticipating—what you expect will happen, or what you want to happen. This model focuses on key aspects of a project, such as tasks, resources, timeframes, and possibly their associated costs.

This lesson guides you through procedures related to creating a new plan and setting its start date, setting nonworking days in a project calendar, and entering a plan’s title and other properties.
