Adding Resources to the Project Schedule and Resolving Resource Overallocations

PROJ430 Project Exercise 5: Resolving Resource Overallocations


In this exercise, you will deal with the over allocated Mechanic from Exercise #4: Adding Resources to the Project Schedule. We will attempt to level the project within available slack. This means, we will try to stagger the times when the mechanic works so he or she is committed to an eight-hour workday, rather than being over allocated. Leveling within slack preserves the original project finish date. If there is insufficient slack to reschedule the tasks on which mechanic works, we will remove this leveling constraint, and allow MS project to extend the project finish date if necessary.


In this exercise, you will add resources to the project
schedule. You will incorporate materials, parts, and employees to your project.
You will add these resources to a resource sheet along with their standard and
overtime rates or material costs and assign them to tasks. This is called the
resource-loaded schedule. Then you will identify which tasks are over
allocated. Resources are over allocated when a resource has to work overtime or
you need more resources than you have available.
