Hour 13. Resolving Resource Allocation P... > Letting Project Level Overallocated ...

Letting Project Level Overallocated Assignments

Instead of manually leveling overallocations as described in the previous sections, you can take the easy route and let Project do the work for you. However, Project can resolve overallocations only by calculating delays; it can't increase resource availability on its own, or adjust the work content of tasks, or substitute one resource for another. It can simply do a mathematical trick and calculate delays as a substitute for the more intelligent methods. You will almost always produce a better schedule if you level assignments manually. If you want to try the automated leveling feature you must use the Tools, Resource Leveling menu command to display the Resource Leveling dialog box and choose the Level Now button. A full discussion of the leveling options is beyond the scope of this book. For complete coverage of the topic, refer to my more comprehensive book, Special Edition Using Project 98, published by Que Corporation.
