Abstract Quality assessment of a construction project schedule can be a challenging task for project stakeholders. A little research work has addressed quality of schedules though a good project schedule can be considered as of the key factors of project success. The development of a reliable and easy to perform construction schedule quality assessment procedure seems to be a challenging task. Since Schedule Health Assessment of a construction project has to be strictly related to process requirements, it is used the3 “S” rule as a starting point and framework for obtaining improved understanding of quality of construction schedules. The 3 “S” are Safety, Space and Structure, meaning that the planned process should provide a safe working environment to construction workers, sufficient space to perform construction activities and the required sequence of construction operations and project phases.The aim of the study is to implement a schedule quality assessment method that takes into account the 3“S” rule of construction process.The 3“S” requirements can be successfully integrated in a Schedule Health Assessment method, but to facilitate their implementation and control a flow-line chart is needed,thus the schedule tool becomes a new requirement for construction schedule quality control.
