What is summary schedule?

In project scheduling, what is a summary schedule? It is just summary of the normal (elaborate) project schedule? In any case, can you give an example of a summary schedule in a small IT project?

Not a formal term I am familiar with, however I would expect this could be a schedule formed from the summary tasks of a project plan.  It makes the milestones and devlierables "higher level" with more time between.  The summary schedule is likely close to what you want to communicate to senior management, so I would extract and put into a tabular (e.g. Word document) form for their consumption.
