What is priority-based scheduling?

Its simple
You dont enter start or nish dates on
your tasks.
You simply assign your tasks, estimate
them and arrange them in priority order
via easy drag & drop.
LiquidPlanner automatically calculates a
range of probable start and nish dates for each of your tasks, and rolls those projections up to your projects.
Deadline dates (/support/articles/deadline-dates-and-risk-alerts ) drive alerts to let you know when youre at risk
of missing a deadline.
When you are juggling multiple concurrent projects, packages (/support/articles/packages ) make it easy to do
granular scheduling of tasks from different projects.

Its realistic
Estimates are entered as ranges (/support/articles/estimating-in-ranges ), allowing you to capture and manage
the inherent uncertainty in all projects.
LiquidPlanner references member availability to do automatic resource leveling
(http://www.liquidplanner.com/blog/2011/1/11/project-management-shortcuts-resource-leveling-made-
easy.html). Its impossible for a person to be over-booked in LiquidPlanner because we simply push out task
start dates to respect availability.
For any given task, LiquidPlanner takes the ranged estimate and weighs it against the task owners availability
and other higher-priority tasks. It also factors in any delays or dependencies that might be affecting the task,
and it applies a statistical algorithm to determine the most likely start and nish dates.
In the absence of delays or dependencies, your top priority task is scheduled to start on the current day. The
earliest start date for each of your tasks thereafter is equal to the earliest nish date of your task that precedes
it in the priority order.
Its dynamic
When you make any change that would affect a task date, LiquidPlanner automatically calculates new dates for
that task, as well as new dates for all other tasks that were affected by the change you made.
Youll see the rescheduling indicator at the top of the screen, and when you refresh youll see the results of the
recalculation. Behold your new, current schedule in a matter of moments!
To maintain an accurate schedule, you simply log progress and re-estimate your work as you go.
