Part IV: Assigning Resources and Costs to Tasks > Editing Resource Assignments

Hour 12. Editing Resource Assignments

In this Hour, we look at techniques you can use to fine-tune the schedule Project calculates for resource assignments and review the effects that changes in the assignments could have on the overall task schedule. We will save dealing with the problem of overallocated resources and how to adjust the schedule to resolve the overallocation problem until Hour 13, "Resolving Resource Allocation Problems."

The scheduling adjustments we will examine in this Hour are:

  • Arranging for one resource to start later (or finish earlier) than other resources assigned to the same task.

  • Interrupting or splitting assignments that are in progress to allow for work on other tasks.

  • Applying a predefined work contour to an assignment.

  • Manually changing or contouring daily work levels for a task.

  • Assigning overtime work.
