Things to check in addition to Larry’s big hits:
1. A single overallocated assignment (i.e. units assigned > units available) cannot be resolved by leveling, so no leveling delay will be applied regardless of the other scoring. These are pretty common, especially with fixed-duration tasks.
2. Leveling options – if “Level only within available slack” is checked, then leveling delays will be severely restricted. Predecessors to your must-start-on constrained tasks would be more affected by this restriction.
3. Leveling options – if “Look for overallocations on a _____ basis” is set to an interval that is of the same or larger scale than the durations of your activities (e.g. week by week or month by month) then some overallocations may not be recognized. Good luck, tom
