What is the difference between construction Planning and Scheduling? Many organizations think that the two are the same. Other organizations who know the difference, often end up doing a lot of scheduling and very little planning. This process in CPM Construction Project Management is not just a matter of paperwork. A project in fact requires more than just planning the work, you have to work the plan as well.
Planning defines the WHAT and HOW. Construction planning should always be done before project scheduling, and for example, is to get the right spare parts, materials, permits, tools, and skills defined. Scheduling defines the WHEN and WHO. Construction scheduling is deciding when and by whom the job is done. Operations and maintenance need to work in a close partnership in order to achieve high scheduling performance since maintenance scheduling is highly dependent on production scheduling.

Providing progress reports is an essential activity of construction project management. It is a document that describes the progress of a project within a specific time period and compares it against the project plan.
