Even if you believe you know the sequence of the work to be done, it is important to understand how long each phase of work is going to take to complete long before it starts so the next phase can be scheduled. When we schedule a job, we decide before any work starts how much time we want to allow for each phase of work and we advise the workers in later phases of work when they can expect to be able to start. The advantage to this is not only does the job proceed faster but the workers do not have to change their plans and have idle days which result in higher costs. This is one good reason why many specialists lower their costs to General Contractors who in the past have not wasted their time and raise their costs to the general public since they know that there is a good chance they will not be able to start when originally told to.
An alternative approach of simply waiting until each task is done before finding and hiring the next set of workers while eliminating the above concern, introduces substantial time delays which, as in the illustration of the lathe paper, can actually cause significant increased costs.
