Part IV: Assigning Resources and Costs t... > Mastering Resource Scheduling in Mic...

Hour 12. Mastering Resource Scheduling in Microsoft Project

In this hour, you learn how Microsoft Project handles resource assignments, and how it then schedules work for those resources. The main thrust of the hour is to explain how the assignment of work resources and task duration are interdependent—duration can affect an assignment, and work resource assignments can also lead to changes in the duration. Material resource assignments, on the other hand, are passively affected by task duration and do not normally induce changes in duration. This hour talks about the relationships among task duration, the number of units assigned, and the amount of work assigned to a resource. You will learn how to use Project's views to assign resources in Hour 13, "Assigning Resources and Costs to Tasks." In this hour, you will learn:

  • The fields used to define resources and work

  • How to use the work formula for scheduling both work and material resources

  • How to control the calculation of work with the task Type setting

  • How Project processes your entries when you assign resources or change resource assignments

  • How the Effort Driven setting for a task affects assignments when you add multiple resources
