Ms project ressource leveling automatic split

Copper Contributor

Hello, 

 

I am trying to use the feature of Ms project that automatically split remaining work to do with a resource.

Here is a very basic example not leveled yet:

  • start date of test 1 is 14/12/23
  • start date of test 2 is 07/12/23
  • priority of test 1 (900) is higher than test 2 (800)

I would like test2 to start before and then split the remaining work when we need to start test 1

I did the following things: 

  • Check box in leveling options  "leveling can create splits in remaining work" is checked 
  • Column "Leveling can split" ies set to Yes

However when I do leveling it does not split any task to optimize the duration of the project.

here is the output when I press Level All

Hi Sarah.

Did you try this configuration of the Resource Leveling options?

Hello, thank you for your reply.

Yes, but it still does not split the remaining task.

Hi Sara.
If the Task type in test 2 is "Fixed Duration", change it to "Fixed Units" or "Fixed Work" (double click on the task > Advanced tab)
Likewise, try selecting "As Soon As Possible" option in Test2 Constraint type (double click on the task > Advanced tab), because the last image you attached shows a constraint.
N. Option "Leveling can adjust individual assignments on a task", in this case it does not need to be selected. It can be applied when there is more than one assignment (resource) in the same task.
I hope I've helped.
