There isn't any, it depends on too many variables. You'll figure it out the hard way the first and then you'll know. Variables include how much you ride/how you shift, how your bike is cabled, how well you take care of it/wash it, the conditions you ride in. There is no 'schedule'. Since my background is being a team mechanic I over do it, but I've never had any cable issues...ever.

Casssettes and chains? Again it depends on all those things plus an additional variable. Do you want to replace chains before they get much wear and use the same cassette and rings for a long time (poor mans tactic) or do you want to wear everything out together and replace it all at the same time (rich man who doesn't care tactic)?
