Adding new Resource on the Partial Finished Task in MS PROJECT 2013 – Part 2 of 2!

Hi,

Today I’ll show another way of adding Resource after it is, for example, 40% Finished.

first, I’ll show you pictures from my Previous Post, so I will create on simple Project in MS PROJECT 2013:

image

and I will create tow Resources like this:

image

and I’ll assign John to the Task:

image

Now I will make Task 40% Completed, like this:

image

and:

image

Now I’ll use Detail View with Task form:

image

As you can see, Task is 40% Finished. I’ll now add Mary as Resource form the Gant Chart:

image

and I’ll get:

image

In this case, I will get EXACT what I’ve got in my Previous Post, e.g.:

image

As you can see, Mary will work only 24 hours (not 40) for this Task! Let’s see Task Usage View:

image

As you can see, John is done with work on Monday and Tuesday (this is 40% of Job done), and now wee need Mary. Mary will work 8 house at Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday. Duration remains the same e.g. 5 days.

If I choose this Option:

image

I will get:

image

So duration is shortened, and Total hours (40) are same. Let’s look at Task Usage View:

image

As you can see, John is done with work on Monday and Tuesday (this is 40% of Job done), and now wee need Mary. John and Mary will split the Remaining work (32 hours) at Wednesday (John will work 8 hours, and Mary as well), and Thursday (John will work 4 hours, and Mary as well). So, work distribution will be:

Monday –>        John 8 hours                             TOTAL:   8 hours

Tuesday –>       John 8 Hours                             TOTAL:   8 hours

Wednesday->   John 8 Hours, Mary 8 Hours       TOTAL: 16 hours

Thursday –>      John 4 hours, Mary 4 Hours       TOTAL:  8 hours

                                                             GRAND TOTAL: 40 hours

Finally I’ll choose the Third Option:

image

and I’ll get:

image

Again, I’m going to use Task Usage View with Peak field:

image

Duration remains same, But for the Rest work, John and Mary will work less hours per day. So, work distribution will be:

Monday –>        John 8 hours                             TOTAL:   8 hours

Tuesday –>       John 8 Hours                             TOTAL:   8 hours

Wednesday->   John 4 Hours, Mary 4 Hours       TOTAL:  8 hours

Thursday –>      John 4 hours, Mary 4 Hours       TOTAL:  8 hours

Friday –>           John 4 hours, Mary 4 Hours       TOTAL:  8 hours

                                                             GRAND TOTAL: 40 hours

 

To conclude, if you want to get those three Options do not add additional Resource from Task Form Screen!

 

Regards!
