How to properly stage painting/stucco project


I have a couple contractor's lined up to do some work on my home. We have some painting, stucco and wood work that needs to be done on the siding. I am trying to figure out how to best order these tasks so that they don't step on each other.

My understanding is that stucco should be done after all painting is complete. My understanding that if stucco is done before painting, paint may get onto the stucco.

Our windows have wooden trim around them. Should the wooden trim be placed onto the gray stucco layer before the texture/color is applied so that it sits a little "in" the stucco, or should texture/color be applied and wood trim placed last? If latter, then I guess some sort of caulking needs to be applied to the trim to prevent water from getting behind the trim?

Thanks for any comments or help on these questions that you can offer.
