Do not enter a start or finish date with this constraint. Start No Earlier Task is scheduled to start on or after a specified date. Must Finish On Task is scheduled to finish on a specified date. Click dropdown box for Constraint type. Choose the constraint you would like to apply. It is a better idea to use a Deadline Date which has no effect on the scheduling of a task or summary task. MS Project will alert you with a red exclamation symbol in the indicators column, if the scheduled completion of the task exceeds its deadline date.
Enter the cost under the Fixed Cost column for the task of interest. Enter a Recurring Task Status meetings, status reports, inspection dates can recur with a particular frequency. In MS Project , you can specify recurring tasks without having to assign tasks each time separately. You can also assign resources to these task. Enter Task Name and choose Recurrence pattern. You can also choose a specific time for the task to start as well.
You can add time value in the Start box for Recurring Task Information dialog box to change this. In the following figure, start time of AM is entered. While schedule changes are made, it is also likely that the critical path will change from time to time. One needs to always focus on the Critical Path first, when one wants to apply fast-tracking or crashing to shorten the project duration.
Slack or Float are key to understanding Critical path. All task bars in the critical path, in the Gantt Chart View on the right, will turn Red in color.
Gantt Chart View displays some limited resource information, as shown in the following screenshot. It summarizes whether there may be a problem by the red over allocated icon in the indicator column.
The Resource Usage view displays resources and all tasks assigned to them underneath the Resource Name. The left-hand side of the screen lists the Resources and the Task Names together with columns of total information for the resource or assignment. The right-hand side shows a time-phased view. Click on Resource Name column heading. Resolve Resource Over Allocation One would need to either change the scope reduce the amount of work , assign more resources, or accept a longer schedule to resolve overallocation.
If you add delay that is less than or equal to the amount of slack on the task, you will not affect the finish date of the project. Substitute Resources or Add Additional Resources You can manually allot some other resource to the task. You can also right-click on the Time-phased grid in the right hand side window to display amount of overallocation by switching on overallocation.
Now you can reduce the assigned hours. In the following example, 8-hour assignment is reduced to 4-hour assignments. You will also notice a new icon in the indicator column to let you know that the assignment work has been edited. If actual work has been recorded, you must manually reduce the remaining work on the task.
Remove Overallocated Resource You can just remove a resource assignment from an overallocated resource. Level Overallocated Resources If resources are overallocated you can use resource-leveling feature in MS Project It works by either splitting tasks or by adding delay to tasks to ensure the resource is not overloaded.
Leveling can delay the individual task finish dates and even the project finish date. Project does not change who is assigned to each task, total work, or assignment unit values. Project first delays tasks to use up any available slack.
Once the slack becomes zero, MS Project makes changes according to priorities, dependency relationships and task constraints such as a Finish No Later Than constraint.
You can enter value between 1 and , according to the amount of control you like in the leveling process. A priority level of will ensure MS Project does not level a particular task. By default, priority is set at or a medium level of control. Tasks that have lower priority are delayed or split before those that have higher priority.
Click on the dropdown box and select Priority. Now you can add priority to each task as required. Leveling Steps in the Leveling process are only a few, but it is important to understand what each option does. Project does leveling and overallocated indicators are removed If leveling is done completely, sometimes this might not happen.
In Resource Leveling dialog box, under Level calculations, try to use Manual more often. For examples, if a resource is overallocated, for say half an hour more in a week, from 40 hours to Doing so will not level resources, but it will determine when Project displays overallocation indicators next to resource names.
In Resource Leveling dialog box, under Level calculations, use the clear leveling values before leveling checkbox is selected. Doing so will ensure Project removes any existing leveling delays from all tasks and assignments before leveling. Here you choose to level either the entire plan or only assignments that fall within a date range you specify. Numerically higher ID numbers for example, 10 will be delayed before numerically lower ID numbers.
You might want to use this option when your plan has no task relationships or constraints. In Resource Leveling dialog box, under Resolving overallocations, you have several options that you can select. MS Project will use only the free slack within the existing schedule, which could mean that resource overallocations might not be fully resolved. Selecting this checkbox allows Project to add a leveling delay or split work on assignments if Leveling Can Create Splits in Remaining Work is also selected independently of any other resources assigned to the same task.
This might cause resources to start and finish work on a task at different times. This allows Project to split work on a task or on an assignment if Leveling Can Adjust Individual Assignments on a Task is also selected as a way of resolving overallocation. Selecting this allows Project to level a manually scheduled task just as it would an automatically scheduled task. This will appear under the fields labeled Cost or Total Cost.
At this stage, the project manager would be focusing on collecting, monitoring, analyzing project performance, and updating project status by communicating with the stakeholders. When there is a difference between what is planned and the actual project performance, it is called a Variance.
Variance is mostly measured in terms of Time and Cost. Task Slippage There are several ways to view task with variance. By comparing the currently scheduled Gantt bars with baseline Gantt bars, you can see what tasks started later than planned or took longer to complete. MS Project will filter the task list to show only the tasks filtered in this process. So if you select Slipping Task, you will view only incomplete tasks.
Any task that is already completed will not show up. You will be able to view all relevant information. You can also use filters to see tasks that have run over budget. Resource Cost For some organizations, resources costs are primary costs, and sometimes the only cost, so these need to be closely watched. We can sort the Cost column to see which resources are the most and least costly.
Click the AutoFilter arrow in Cost column heading, when the drop-down menu appears, click on Sort Largest to Smallest. Project Report Project comes with a set of predefined reports and dashboards. You can create and customize graphical reports for your project as well.
There are four options. Alternatively, you can click the View tab and click the Tables button under the Data group and then select Schedule. The Schedule table replaces the Entry table to the left of the Gantt Chart.
This view shows the start and finish meaning the early start and early finish and late start and late finish dates for each task, as well as free and total slack.
Right-click the Select All button and select Entry to return to the Entry table view. Select All button Schedule table Figure A Schedule table view 4. Open the Project Overview report.
Examine other reports, as desired. Close the report and save your file. When you are finished examining the reports, click the Save button on the Quick Access toolbar to save your final myschedule. Close Project if you are not continuing to the next section.
Next you will explore some of the cost and resource management features of Project Some organizations have more established cost management software products and procedures in place, and many people simply do not know how to use the cost or resource management features of Project However, these features make it possible to integrate total project information more easily.
This section offers brief instructions for entering fixed and variable cost estimates, assigning resources to tasks, viewing resource histograms, and entering actual cost and schedule information after establishing a baseline plan.
It also explains how to use Project for earned value management. More details on these features are available in Project Help, online tutorials, or other texts. See other chapters of this text for information on some of these concepts. Fixed costs include costs like a specific quantity of materials or costs for consultants hired at a fixed cost.
Variable costs vary based on the amount of materials or hours people work. On many projects, human resource costs are the largest percentage of total project costs. To enter a fixed cost: 1. Display the Cost Table view. Open your Project file myschedule.
The Cost table replaces the Entry table to the left of the Gantt chart. Widen the Task Name column and then move the Split bar to the right, as needed, until you see the entire Cost table.
Enter a fixed cost. Notice that the Total Cost and Remaining Cost columns reflect this entry, and changes are made to the summary task, Executing, as well. Entering a fixed cost Entering Resource Information and Cost Estimates Several methods are available for entering resource information in Project Once you have established resources in the Resource Sheet, you can assign those resources to tasks in the Entry table with the list arrow that appears when you click a cell in the Resource Names column.
The Resource Names column is the last column of the Entry table. To enter basic information about each person into the Resource Sheet and assign them to tasks using the Entry table and toolbar: 1.
Display the Resource Sheet view. Enter resource information. Enter the information from Figure A into the Resource Sheet. The three resources names are Kathy, Dan, and Scott. The Std. Rate and Ovt. Rate for Kathy is 40, and the Std. Rates for Dan and Scott are Type the information as shown and press the Tab key to move to the next field. The standard and overtime rates entered are based on hourly rates.
Resource sheet view with resource data entered TIP: If you know that some people will be available for a project only part time, enter their percentage of availability in the Max Units column of the Resource Sheet. Project will then automatically assign those people based on their maximum units. You can also enter the number of hours each person is scheduled to work, as shown later.
Assign resources to tasks. Move the Split bar to reveal the Resource Names column, if needed. Assign Kathy to task 2, Stakeholder identification. Click in the Resource Names cell for row 2.
Click the list arrow, click on the checkbox by Kathy, and then press Enter or click on another cell. Notice that the resource choices are the names you just entered in the Resource Sheet. To assign more than one resource to a task using the list arrow, simply select another checkbox. Note that Project will assume that each resource is assigned full-time to tasks using this method since the task is in automatically schedule mode. Also note that you can use filter by Resource Names to only show tasks assigned to specific resources after you enter the resources.
Filter Resource Names Figure A Resource assigned using the entry table 5. Assign two resources to a task. Click in the Resource Names cell for row 5 Project charter. Click the list arrow, then click on the checkbox by Dan and Kathy, and then press Enter. Notice that both resource names appear in the Resource Names column and on the Gantt chart for this task, and the task duration remains at 1 week.
Change the resource assignments. Click in the Resource Names cell for Task 2, Stakeholder identification, click the list arrow, and add Dan as another resource. Notice that when you change an original resource assignment, Project prompts you for how you want to handle the change, as shown in Figure A Click the Exclamation point symbol to read your options. In past versions of Project, resource additions would change schedules automatically unless the user entered them a certain way.
Now you have much more control of what happens to your schedule and costs. In this case, we do want to accept the default of keeping the duration constant.
Options when additional resources are added to tasks 7. Review the cost table. Notice that costs have been added to the tasks where you added resources.
In the next section, you will see how to control resources entries even more. First, right-click the Select All button to the left of the Task Mode column heading and select Entry to return to the Entry table. To control resource and work assignments using the Resource details window: 1. Open the Resource Form.
Move your mouse over the symbol to read the message about resources being overallocated. Click the Task Name for row 2, Stakeholder identification, click the Resource tab, and then click on the Details button under the Properties group.
A Resource Form is displayed at the bottom of the screen, as shown in Figure A Project assumes every task is assigned full-time, so since Kathy is scheduled on two tasks on the same day, it says she is overallocated. You can click the Select All button at the top right of the screen to view different tables at the top of the screen.
You want to make sure that resource and work hour assignments do not adjust your schedules in ways you did not intend. Make tasks 2 and 5 manually scheduled. Click the Select All button and switch to the Entry table. Click the drop-down in the Task Mode column for Tasks 2 and 5 to make them manually scheduled.
When you assigned resources, Project assumed they were working full-time or 40 hours per week on each task. Because these two tasks have days that overlap, there is an overallocation.
You do not expect each resource to work that many hours, so you can change them by using the Resource Form. Change the number of Work hours. Select Task 2, Stakeholder identification in the top window, and then click the Work column in the Resource Form window for Kathy in the lower part of your screen.
Type 10h, press Enter, and again type 10h and press Enter for the next task, Task 5, Project charter, and then click the OK button. Changing Work hours for tasks 4. Enter additional work hours and review the Gantt chart. Notice in the Gantt chart that the duration for Tasks 2 and 5 are still one week. The overallocation indicator should now disappear because the number of hours has been reduced from the default of 8 hours per day, or 40 hours for a 5-day task.
Examine the new cost information. Click the Select All button, and then click Cost to view the Cost table. Close the file, but do not save the changes you made. Using the Team Planner Feature Another way to assign resources and reduce overallocations is by using the Team Planner feature.
Assume you have two people assigned to work on a project, Brian and Cindy, as shown in Figure A Notice that Brian is assigned to work on both Task 1 and Task 2 full-time the first week.
Therefore, Brian is overallocated. Cindy is scheduled to work on Task 3 full-time the second week, and Task 4, also scheduled for the second week, is not assigned yet. Overallocated resource You can click on the Team Planner view under the View tab to see a screen similar to the top section of Figure A Notice that Brian has both Tasks 1 and 2 assigned to him at the same time.
Cindy is assigned Task 3 the following week, and Task 4 is unassigned. Many people will appreciate the simplicity of this feature, first introduced in Project ! Adjusting resource assignments using the Team Planner feature Entering Baseline Plans, Actual Costs, and Actual Times After entering information in the Task Name column, establishing task durations and dependencies, and assigning costs and resources, you are ready to establish a baseline plan. After the project ends, you can use the baseline and actual information to plan similar, future projects more accurately.
To use Project to help control projects and view earned value information, you must establish a baseline plan, enter actual costs, and enter actual durations. In the next series of steps you will use a new file called tracking.
To save a file as a baseline and enter actual information: 1. Open the file called tracking. The file should be showing the Cost table view.
Saving a baseline 2. Save the file as a baseline. Examine the Set Baseline dialog box. Click the drop- down arrow to see that you can set up to ten baselines. Accept the default to save the entire project. Notice that the Baseline column changes to blue. Display the Tracking table. Click the Task tab, right-click the Select All button and then click Tracking to view the tracking table.
Move the split bar to the right to reveal all of the columns in the table, if needed. Move your mouse over each tracking button in the Ribbon in the top line of the Schedule group to see what it does. Using the tracking table and tracking buttons 4.
The columns with dates, durations, and cost information should now contain data instead of the default values, such as NA or 0. Adjust column widths if needed. Notice that the Gantt chart bars for those three tasks now have a black line through them. Tracking table information 5. Enter actual completion dates for Task 6. The Update Tasks dialog box opens.
Notice how the information in the tracking sheet has changed. Update Tasks dialog box 6. View the Tracking Gantt chart. Click the drop-down arrow on the far left of the screen where it says Gantt chart, and then click Tracking Gantt to quickly switch to that view. Move the split bar and adjust column widths as needed. Use the horizontal scroll bar in the Gantt chart window to the right move the slider to the left to see symbols on the Tracking Gantt chart.
Use the Zoom slider on the lower right of the screen to adjust the timescale so you can see all of the symbols. The blue bar for task 6 shows the actual time you just entered. Notice that the delay in this one task on the critical path has caused the planned completion date for the entire project to slip now Feb 25 versus Feb Also notice the Indicator column to the far left.
The check marks show that tasks are completed. Completion indicator Tracking Gantt chart Figure A Tracking Gantt chart view 7. Save your file as a new file named myactuals. Name the file myactuals, and then click Save. Notice the additional information available on the Tracking Gantt chart. After you have entered some actuals, you can review earned value information for the initiating tasks of this project.
Because you have entered actual information, you can now view earned value information in Project You can also view an earned value report using the visual reports feature. To view earned value information: 1. View the Earned Value table. Using the myactuals file you just saved or downloaded from the companion Web site , click the Select All button, select More Tables, and double-click Earned Value.
Move the split bar to the right to reveal all of the columns, as shown in Figure A Remember that not all of the actual information has been entered yet. Also note that the date on your computer must be set later than the date of a completed task for the data to calculate properly. Earned value table 2. View the earned value chart. You can experiment with different report options or click the link to Learn more about earned value, as desired.
Earned value report 3. Close Project without saving the file. Click the File tab, click Close, and select No when prompted to save the file. You can also exit Project and take a break, if desired.
Next you will use a few more features of Project to help tie your Project to other applications. For example, you can copy data between Project and other applications including the timeline , or you might want to create hyperlinks to project documents created in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, or other applications from within your project files.
Copying Information Between Applications Most people are familiar with copying information between Office applications. For example, you can highlight a column of data in Excel, select copy, and then select Paste in Project or other applications. You can also create a new Project file from an existing Excel file by select New from Excel Workbook. It is also easy to copy a timeline from Project into another application. Start your free trial.

Book description Get up to speed on Microsoft Project and learn how to manage projects large and small. The important stuff you need to know Learn Project inside out. Get hands-on instructions for the Standard and Professional editions. Start with a project management primer. Slide the partition to the right to expose as much of the entry table as possible. You should see two side-by-side columns the start column and the finish column.
By changing any of the dates in these columns, you are setting a hard date constraint. If you do so, a flag will appear in the very first column of the entry table, the column labeled I for information. If you rest the cursor on that flag, a message appears that informs you of the hard date constraint that has been applied to the task. Only one hard date constraint can be set per task at the start date or at the stop date, but not both. Resources can be places, departments, businesses, people, equipment–anything required to complete an activity.
When you create an assignment, you assign a resource to a task. The resource issue makes the project. You can assign: Individual resources Assign resources part time Several resources Remove resources from a task Replace one resource with another. In the Task name field, select the task to which you have to assign a resource. Click on the assign resource button on the tool bar button with 2 faces on it.
In the Name field, type in the name of the resource. Click assign. This is a bad assumption in the software business because as Brooks  pointed out, men and months are not interchangeable unless there is no interaction between them. If you decide to split your job with another person, you will have to spend some time training the other person to do your part of the job. Then you will have to interact with the other person as the two of you together build the interfaces that are necessary between each person s module s.
Clearly, the time is not split in half. In the Task name field, select the task to which you have to remove a resource. Click on the assign resource button button with 2 faces on it. Select the resource you want to remove. Click Remove. To print the required view,. The numbers to the left will appear automatically if you add the WBS column as demonstrated in class. The numbers shown in the WBS column above are there to indicate subordination. This is precisely what the 1. Likewise, Management Supervisor Technical Clerical.
Notice that, for the walk-throughs, all resources get assigned. MS Project will try to cut the duration to something less than one day. You must re-set the duration to one day for the walk-throughs once all resources have been assigned. Explain why summary tasks have no stated duration in the table above. Explain why the first subordinate task immediately below a summary task has no predecessor. The end result of all of these tasks and assignment entries is the following:.
It also helps you to determine how closely the final project cost matches its estimated cost and also helps in planning for the future. For hourly rates, you can assign a standard rate, which is the rate you pay a resource during normal working hours.
Rate is the amount you will pay the resource for any overtime that it does. To resources that charge a flat amount to do a job, you can assign a fixed cost per use. On the View baron the left, click Resource sheet 2. In the Std. Rate, Ovt. On the View Bar, click Gantt Chart. On the View menu, click on Table, select Cost from the list and then click on Cost. In the Fixed Cost field for the task, type-in the cost 4. A fixed resource cost is added to other resource costs when MS Project calculates the total cost of a task, but doesn t depend on the time a resource spends working on the task.
In the Task Name field, select a task. On the Window menu, click Split. In the Resource Name field, select the resource name. If a new, undefined resource is to be assigned, it must be added to the list, so do so.
On the format menu, point to details and then click Resource Cost. In the Task type box, click Fixed Duration. In the units field for the resource, type 0 and then click OK 8. In the Cost field, type the fixed resource cost. On the Window menu, click Remove Split. Notice how this task is displayed on the Gantt Chart. You can:. View cost per resource. View the total project cost. View cost per task The sum of individual task costs make up most if not all of the total project cost.
To view the total cost of each task 1. On the vertical View Bar on the left, click Gantt Chart. Select View on the menu bar, click Table, and then choose Cost. Scroll the table on the left to view the Total Cost field.
Alternatively, pull the partition back to the right to view more of the table and less of the Gantt Chart. View the cost per Resource This helps you to know the total cost of that resource for all the tasks the resource is assigned to.
On the vertical View Bar on the left, click Resource Sheet. On the Project menu, click Project Information. Click Statistics. Perhaps you would like to view project costs on the Entry table which is the default table that loads up with MS Project when it is booted. You would like an additional column to appear right after the name field and right before the duration field. First position the highlight anywhere in the duration column.
The click on the insert item on the menu bar. Then, click on Column In the Column Definition dialog box that appears, click on the drop down arrow associated with the Field Name field, the first field in the box. The list of columns that you can insert appear alphabetized by name. Scroll to cost and click on it. Now, click on the OK button in the upper right corner of the box.
The column now appears in your table exactly where you want it. And, now you can see all of your costs. The main goals of analyzing your project plan are to: Shorten the schedule, to meet project deadline.
Distribute the work load evenly, by resolving resource over allocations, so that no resources are overworked. Reduce costs to a minimum, to save money and complete the project within your budget. The main factors that affect how MS Project determines a task s start and finish dates are: Placement. In a logically ordered set of tasks, the tasks are usually performed in the order in which they appear in the task list. Several factors affect duration, but, in general, the longer the duration you enter, the later a task finishes.
Changing the duration may change the task finish date. Task dependencies. The type of link you establish between two tasks determines whether the successor task starts after the predecessor task is complete. By replacing one type of link with another, you can change the task s start and finish dates and, perhaps the project end date.
