I have established an operational schedule with a set of common tasks that a group resources may apply time against within the course of a year. Each resource within the group is evenly assigned to each tasks. This results in each resource accumulating about 300hrs in work that is evenly distributed across 12 months for each task. The challenge with operational schedules is that the actuals can generate a trend that doesn’t align with the forecast. In those scenarios, a resource burns through their planned work quicker than forecasted and the task disappears from the resource’s timesheet even though there is still work that may be needed in the future. Has anyone encountered a widget that will retain the task in the resource’s timesheet until the PM states the tasks is complete or a widget that alerts the PM that a low % of hours are remaining on the task?
Pretty nice resource about the assignment for students. I just stumbled upon your blog and wanted to say that I have really enjoyed this one post. I’ll be bookmarking your feed and I hope you write again on another interesting topic. Kepp doing great work for students.
