as per PMBOK , reserve analysis is one of the tool for controlling cost but nothing is mentioned about reserve analysis can be used for controlling schedule..

I feel it can be even used as tool for controlling schedule? because one need to see how much time of contingency reserve is still available....

Manish sir your opinion please..
thanks Manish sir for patiently responding to all my queries everytime. i feel obliged.

it is indirectly covered in 6.7.2.1
based on CCM or CPM the buffer (reserve) will be different.
in CPM we focus on activities on critical path for its completion etc
in CCM we focus on project buffer.
