Default How to assign specific work hours?

Hello,



Due to Covid, I have a project where my client is only allowing 6 workers in an area during a plant shut-down. The project is scheduled to run 18 hours a day for 4 days... but those 18 hours are not specific work hours. The 18 hours starts at different times each day.

A little hard to explain, but what I need to do is assign work hours to each trade, but task specific. By example, starting on Monday, I'll need contractor A to work from 8am to 11am alongside of contractor B. But B will work from 8am to 10am, then C comes in from 10am till 1pm. Then A comes back in with D. Throw into the mix that all contractors are off-site from 1am Tuesday morning until 10am and will be on-site for another 18 hours... so till 4am. Work hours are also different for Wednesday and Thursday.

I started doing simple predecessors, but it just didn't work out. Too messy. So, ideally, I would like to tell Project that contractor A is working from 7 to 11 on Monday. Contractor B is 8 to 10, and not link any tasks. I thought I would be able to do this in the information window, but I don't see it. For such a small project, I really don't need to link trades & predecessors.

Can anyone help me out with this?

Thanks!!!

Did you try creating individual calendars for each trade, then using exceptions (per day) to create the work day start and finish times? Just a thought
