my Blog Reader has a problem:
“Please can you help me. I would like to know how I can ask MS project to set one task ALAP without causing successors to move ALAP as well. In other words, I like to keep all tasks as MS default setting (ASAP) except one task to be set as ALAP.
Your response will greatly be appreciated.”
That will be a short and easy one in MS PROJECT 2013.
First, I’ll create Tasks in my Project, and default Constraint Type is ASAP (As Soon As Possible):
Now I’m going to create Dependencies:
I’ll say that Task 3 has ALAP (As Late As Possible) constraint:
and I’ll get:
As you can see Start Date of Task 3 is now 15.10.2013, and not 14.10.2013.
Now I’ll tell that Task 4 has Task 3 as Predecessor:
Because Task 4 has Task 3 as Predecessor, Task 3 will start at 14.10.2013!
Finally, If I say that Task 4 has Task 3 and Task 2 as Predecessors, I’ll get:
Now, Task 3 will start at 15.10.2013 and Task 4 will start at 16.10.2013, because Task 2 will be finished at 15.10.2013!
It’s a little bit tricky, but you should try on your own!
