Baseline is a reference that is being used as a base for future measurement. Baseline is the value or condition against which all future measurements will be compared. A Baseline is a fixed schedule, which represents the standard that is used to measure the performance of the project. Every time a change to the scope of the project is approved, the schedule should be adjusted and a new revision of the baseline should be used instead.




In project management, establishing the Baseline is the formal end of project planning and the beginning of project execution and control. Controlling the project Baseline is critical to project success. Changes can drastically impact a project and if you don’t know where you started it is difficult to control the project. It is equally important to begin with clearly understood requirements, accurate costs and schedule estimates. After the initial iterative planning process, the planning baselines must be frozen and put under configuration control.
