Just a quick addition to the good advice already provided. Generally it is easier to manage the schedule with fewer resources assigned to each task. With that said it is often the correct choice. I tend to start with one, the person responsible for the task. Then if someone else is performing meaningful work on that same activity and it doesn’t make sense to split it out then by all means assign them. There are many times when you have a lead who provides support and tends to work on many tasks. In that case I will give that person a separate support task to put all that general work. It helps you as a PM and is easier to update for the resource. Hope that helps…
