    If you're on schedule you expect to finish at the planned time. If you're ahead of schedule you expect to finish before then. Commented Apr 2, 2020 at 12:12

Yes you can. Only thing is, don't use a "the".

The most common uses are:

We are way behind schedule!

We are right on schedule!

We are well ahead of schedule!
