Part 2

Yale Braunstein

School of Information Management & SystemsUC Berkeley


More on previous topics

More on previous topics

  • The “weekend problem”

    • We changed the working schedule, but this may cause problems if schedule changes(Alt-T-H)

    • Alternate approach: assign “dummy resource” and change its schedule (Select resource on Resource Sheet, then either Alt-T-H or right click)

  • Splitting tasks

  • Finding and “using” slack (tasks off the critical path)

    • Free slack – delays don’t delay ANY other task

    • Total slack – delays don’t delay project finish date


Track progress with ms project

Track progress with MS Project

  • When tasks & timeline are set, save baseline

  • Several alternatives for tracking progress

    • Enter % completed

    • Enter time to complete

    • Enter date completed

      (more than one is allowed)

  • Review for changes in critical path

  • It is now possible to modify the baseline in Project 2000

    • But think about why you want to do this!

    • Work-around for Project 98
