Part IV: Assigning Resources and Costs t... > Editing Resource Assignments

Hour 14. Editing Resource Assignments

In this hour, you look at techniques you can use to fine-tune the resource assignments you've made and the schedule that Project calculates for those assignments. You also review the effects that changes in the assignments could have on the overall task schedule. I will save dealing with the problem of over allocated resources and how to adjust the schedule to resolve the over allocation problem until Hour 15, "Resolving Resource Allocation Problems."

The scheduling adjustments you will examine in this hour are:

  • Selecting the cost rate table to use for pricing a resource's work

  • 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
