What Is the Difference Between Project Progress and Project Schedule?

The main difference between Project Progress and Project Schedule is that the former refers to the work actually done for a specific period, while Project Schedule refers to the planned dates for performing work (or activities). Project progress falls under reporting in Project Management, while Project Schedule falls under planning.

An example of Project Progress would be: “The project is 72% as of today, December 3rd” (note that Project Progress refers to “Movement towards Completion”). An example of an activity in the Project Schedule would be “We will start the working on the interface on Monday, December 7th, and we will be finished by Thursday, December 17th.”
