Hour 9. Defining Resources and Costs > Improving the Accuracy of the Schedule

Improving the Accuracy of the Schedule

One of the benefits will be a far more realistic schedule of dates. If you assign, or allocate, individual resources to work on specific tasks and have told Project when those resources are available for work, then Project will recalculate the schedule to accommodate the working times of the assigned resources. It will schedule work on tasks around the vacations and other nonworking times you have identified for the resources. In Figure 9.1, you can be sure that the scheduled start and finish dates for each task take into account any nonworking days for the resources named next to its task bar.

Resource Assignment A resource assignment is the result of allocating a resource's time to work on a task. You can assign resources full-time, part-time, and overtime (beyond their normal working hours). Project calculates the hours of work an assignment involves and the cost of using the resource for that many hours.
