Chapter 9. Understanding Resource Scheduling > Modifying Resource Assignments

Modifying Resource Assignments

You have seen that you can define a resource assignment by specifying the task duration, the assignment units, and the work for the assignment. You have seen that your choice of the task type and its effort-driven status also affect resource assignments. In this section, we will examine other options for fine-tuning resource assignments. The choices include the following:

  • Adding a delay to a resource’s start date so that it starts after other resources have started on the task

  • Splitting a resource’s schedule on a task to accommodate time when the resource is needed elsewhere

  • Assigning overtime work to a resource

  • Applying one of the predefined work contours to an assignment

  • Manually adjusting the work contour for an assignment

  • Scheduling the resource based on a task calendar in conjunction with, or instead of, the resource calendar
