Default Multiple resources on one task

Hi all



I'm a little rusty. I'm working in 2010.

I have been given the durations (in days) that tasks will take. I have multiple resources, all of whom will be working on the same tasks, all assigned units will differ, example, resource A will spend 60%, B will spend 20% and C will spend 20%.

Apparently each resource with have a different number of effective hours per day.

How should I handle this in the schedule?

thanks

JD

Yes, of course. When you create resources, each has his/her own calendar. If Bob only works 6 hours per day - then change his calendar. However, if you want to say Bob can only produce 6 hours per day out of 8 hours - then don't change his calendar, set his max units at 75%. Then, when you assign Bob to the task, he will be assigned at 75% - the work for him will be calculated at 75% of duration. Or, you can enter his work and Project will calculate duration.
