Time planning is one of the keys in achieving a successful project completion apart from cost, resources and quality planning. Poor time planning has continued to hinder many construction projects from gaining profitability and success. The effectiveness of time planning is measured by the impacts of proper time planning to other aspects in a project. Its effectiveness can be measured in terms of overall cost, resources and quality of the project. This research is conducted to recognize the importance and impacts of time planning in construction projects. Problems related to time planning are also identified. The author includes improvement in time planning that can be implemented in construction projects in the future. In order to obtain data, survey questionnaires and interviews are conducted to different management levels in companies involved in construction projects and the Integrity & Engineering Department of PETRONAS Carigali Sdn. Bhd. (Sarawak Operations). In order to determine the effectiveness of time planning in construction projects, a statistical analysis will be carried out, and followed by possible suggestions to mitigate the problems of time planning by interviewing selected respondents. The improvement measures derived from this research are hoped to enhance rate of project success in the construction industry in Malaysia. Although there were several time planning studies in the past prior to this research, the effectiveness of time planning is diverse, depending on the industries and countries. Therefore, this research of time planning in construction projects in Malaysia is unmatched. In fact, it has a huge importance for an effective construction project management. Finally, the author concludes this research and provides suitable recommendations.
