Here I am providing an example table of Tasks so that you will easily understand how we schedule each and every task on site: -
In the Table you can see the Whole construction of the Residential Building should have to complete within 152 days, in the table I have provided an example of scheduling from General conditions to the Foundation part of the building. This same pattern of scheduling is adopted while working in MSP.
There are many more things you can do with MSP, like Resource Allocation, Weightage Calculation of Every Event, Risk Calculation, etc.
