Since we last looked at the wedding plan I’ve added quite a bit more detail to it in terms of the durations of many of the tasks and quite a few straightforward dependencies. So for example, if you look down at ID 20, Catering, within that there are two pairs of tasks, Make caterer shortlist and then Book caterer and Finalize menu. I’ve allowed fifteen days for making a shortlist of caterers and talking to them, making a decision about which one to book and then finalizing the menu with them. I’ve allowed fifteen days for each of those tasks. And then I’ve done the same for the baker, the baker who’s going to make the wedding cake. Now it may look from the current plan that we could get this wedding through very, very quickly. But as you can see one of the main issues is that we’re doing everything all at once right at the start of the project. And in reality that’s not what would happen. There just wouldn’t be enough time in a short period of time, of in this case a few weeks, to do all of those things at the same time. And as we’ll see later on in the course there are various factors, various reasons that will force us to spread these activities out over time. But for the moment I want to just leave the plan like this except for adding a few dependencies that are really very important. Now one situation that arises very often when you’re working on projects is that there are one or two key decisions to make. And there are certain things you must do before you make those key decisions and there are certain other things you can’t do until after you’ve made those key decisions. And what I want to look at first in this section is the very key decision of the wedding date, the date of the wedding itself. Now you can’t do everything before you decide on the date. So for example we talked in the previous section about making out the guest list and sending out the invitations. You can’t send out the invitations until you’ve set the wedding date.

In this section we’re going to look at recurring tasks. Now the use of recurring tasks may not be something that you have come across before and if you are going to use the technique of recurring tasks you need to be a little bit careful about one or two of the limitations that apply. You also need to understand quite clearly how to set recurring tasks up correctly. Now let me start by giving you an example of where you might use a recurring task and I’m going to create a little project here comprising just of recurring tasks. But of course you can create recurring tasks within any kind of project. And the example that I’m going to use is an example of a progress meeting and it’s going to be in our case on a certain day of the month. It’s going to be on the 29th of the month each month and it’s going to be a three hour meeting on the afternoon of the 29th. So it’s going to run from 1400 to 1700. Now given that sort of pattern if you were managing a project that say lasted about the year you’d be looking at about a dozen progress meetings. Now this is the first very important point to bear in mind. If you’re going to set those up as a recurring task you need to be in a situation where you will not often vary from that pattern. In fact you’re in a situation where you pretty much stick to that pattern all of the time. Now there are some natural variations. So for instance, the 29th of the month isn’t always on a working day. Project 2016 can cope with that sort of natural variation. So that’s fine. But if what in fact happens is that every month you decide what time of day you’re going to have the meeting or more often than not the boss decides that it’s not going to be on the 29th, it’s going to be on the 24th or some other apparently fairly random change each time then recurring tasks are definitely not the way to go. You need something that really is pretty consistent, although as I say, Project 2016 can deal with some of the more obvious, natural variations. Now before we do this I just want to demonstrate one other thing and that is something that a surprisingly large number of people don’t generally get to do with Project. And that is to use times as well as dates in start and finish. Quite often you don’t need to do it. People tend to schedule in terms of whole days. But let me just adjust these column widths and then I’m going to go into the Options and on the General page I’m going to reset the date format to include the time. Okay. Now what I’m going to do is to create my recurring task. So on the Task tab in the Insert group on the Task dropdown one of the options is Recurring Task. That brings up the Recurring Task Information dialog. I’m going to give my recurring task a name. Now the duration of the task in this case is just three hours. Of course I could have any standard duration that I like there, number of days, but in this case it’s just three hours. And the recurrence pattern is what I define next.

MS Project: Links and Dependencies: FS, SS, FF, SF - Part 18 of 55

Students from 100+ countries! In the previous section, we have seen how to create tasks in Project. We have seen different types of tasks, task modes, different ways of creating tasks and different ways of organizing them. In most cases, the tasks in a project are related to each other, and the relationships between them drive the schedule for the project. You will find very few tasks in isolation, if any at all. The relationships between the tasks are called "task dependencies" or "task links". Project offers four kinds of task dependencies: finish-to-start (FS), start-to-start (SS), finish-to-finish (FF), and start-to-finish (SF). The next step in building a project schedule is to create dependencies that reflect your actual project scenarios. Let us first see the simplest way in which to create a dependency. First select the tasks to be linked - here on this screen I have some tasks that we can see being linked in various ways. The first 2 tasks "Get Budget Approval" and "Initiate Project" - are syntactically to be linked. I will select them both and on the Task tab, in the Schedule section, click this icon called Link. The icon looks like a chain link - and does precisely that. It creates a dependency between the two tasks. You can see that in the Gantt Chart, an arrow mark has appeared from the end of the first task to the start of the second task. When you click on the link button - it creates a finish to start (FS) link by default. This is the most common type of dependency and is the default type of dependency that Project uses. In a finish-to-start dependency, the second task in the relationship can't begin until the first task finishes. So, in this case, the project initiation (i.e. task two) can start when the budget approval is completed (i.e. task one). Let us now look at the other types of dependencies. There is another view that Project provides us for conveniently setting a Task's details. Select task ID 4 and click on the View tab. Now, you can see a checkbox called Details in the Split View section. When you turn this checkbox on - the Task Form split window opens up. This window can be toggeled OFF or ON at any time by going to the details button as shown just now. If you get "Resources and Successor" here, just right click and select "Predecessor and Successor". Now, first confirm in the Name box that you are working on the correct task. Then in the Successor Name column, click to open a drop down box, with all the task names. Select the ID 5 task "IT Infra Plan for Approval". Once that is done, we can click on the "Type" column to select the type of dependency link. I will select the Start-to-Start (SS) dependency. This is because, these two tasks which require getting approvals from 2 different departments - to start together. Just to clarify, Start-to-start (SS) dependencies are used when the second task in the relationship can't begin until after the first task in the relationship begins. Start-to-start dependencies don't require that both tasks start at the same time. They simply require that the first task has begun, in order for the second task to begin. Now, let us the next type of dependency. We will link the next 2 tasks to demonstrate a finish-to-finish dependency. If one of your tasks can't finish until another one finishes, you can use a finish-to-finish (FF) dependency between them. Finish-to-finish dependencies don't require that both tasks be completed simultaneously. They simply require that the first task be finished, in order for the second task to finish. The second task can finish any time after the first task finishes. Now, we have linked these two tasks. The last type of link is the Start-to-Finish (SF) dependency. When you use this type of dependency, you are saying that the second task in the relationship can't finish until the first task starts. However, the second task can finish any time after the first task starts. This reverses the time order of the two tasks. You should not be using this dependency very often and should carefully validate this type of link if you are required to use this. I will link the last two tasks with an SF dependency and you can see how this looks. Let us take a moment to see all the links on the Gantt chart. The FS link - SS, FF and finally SF links.

Microsoft Project:  Using Graphical Indicators
 
08:22
Sir Ganttalot explains that getting the "big picture" on a project can be difficult if you have to interpret hundreds of tasks one by one to find out which ones are good in terms of progress and baseline variance, and which ones are not. Adding Graphical Indicators to a Gantt Chart can help you zero in tasks which are going well, or going badly. In this video Sir Ganttalot explains what Graphical Indicators are, and how to create them and use them in your project schedules.

In this section we’re going to look at Outline Codes. Now so far when we’ve been talking about structure of a project I’ve generally been talking about the structure of the tasks in the project. So for instance, summary tasks, subtasks and so on. And we’ve looked at Outline Numbering and WBS Codes that reflect and identify that structure and the elements of the structure. But apart from the fact that these intrinsically have some problems that we’ve been looking at in the last couple of sections in some situations there are many other ways that you may want to add structure to your project. Now in this section we’re going to look at an alternative way of setting up structure for a project and we’re also going to be looking at a different sort of structure. Now in order to do this I’m going to go back to the Northern Farm Foods Website project. A very simple project with a few resources. And instead of showing you an alternative way of setting up the structure that you can see there in the table on the left what I’m going to do is to reflect the requirements of an accountant. And what the accountant wants to do is to be able to identify cost centers and cost center structures for these resources. And we need to set up a structure which reflects how we charge for the use of these resources. So in this case we’re not looking at a task structure. We’re going to look at a resource structure. So let’s take a look at the Resource Sheet and I’ll explain to you more fully what we need to do in this case. What the project accountant has told us is that we need to identify internal resources against external resources and then we need to identify which of the internal resources are chargeable and not chargeable and we need to do the same for the external resources. So we’re going to set up a very simple structure and we’re going to use this structure in order to clarify the charging within the project. Now I appreciate that in reality you may well often have a much more complex situation than this but this one will serve to demonstrate the use of outline codes pretty well. So there are my resources. In the case of Northern Farm Foods the first resource, the client. If we look at the sort of things that they’re doing on the project, let’s click on Resource Usage here for the view. Northern Farm Foods are assisting with the requirements definition of course. As the client they would be. They are contributing on the analysis and design and they’re doing some testing. Now as the client we don’t have to pay them for what they’re doing. Their contribution is overall part of the commercial arrangement we have with the client. Now Mark Ravenswood is a member of staff and he is paid by salary. And for salaried staff working in their normal areas of activity the department for which that person works would not charge for their time. Basically Mark, as with several other members of staff, will be allocated to work on a project. And although we’d obviously need to keep track of his work, know what his work commitments were and so on, his time isn’t actually charged to the project.

In this section we're going to look at the critical path for a project. So, first of all, what is the critical path of a project and why is it important? The critical path is the set of tasks that must be completed for the project to be completed on schedule. Even with a project that's not particularly big, there are usually some tasks that could be delayed without affecting the overall end date or duration of a project. But there's also a set of tasks that can't be delayed and that set of tasks is the critical path and it's normally a sequence of tasks that are from the beginning of the project right through to the end of the project. With virtually every project you deal with, it'll be important to know what the critical path is. And the first thing we're going to do in this section is to see how to identify the critical path of a project. Now what I've done is to add a few more details to our building project. So I've added some subtasks under Lay foundation and some subtasks under Build walls and under Fit roof. So I've still got my five summary tasks but each of them now has a number of subtasks, and if I expand each of those you see that the project is beginning to grow in size. On the Gantt Chart Tools Format tab, one of the options is a checkbox in the Bar Styles Group for critical tasks. And if you click on this checkbox, you will show the critical tasks of the project in red. So click there are you can see that everything under Prepare site, everything under Lay foundation, everything under Build walls, it's all red which means they are all critical tasks. If I go down to the bottom, everything under Fit roof is critical as well. In fact, the only tasks that aren't critical are the Fit windows and doors task. Now in words the reason for that is that in effect Fit windows and doors happens in parallel according to this schedule with the task of fitting the roof and because the fitting a roof task takes longer, the fitting doors and fitting windows task could take a little longer than we intend without having the overall project delayed. Now, of course, at this stage I'm still looking at a version of this schedule where I have resource overallocation issues. And if I now level the resource, let's see if my critical path changes. So I'm going to go to the Resource tab. I'm going to say Level all. It levels the tasks for the carpenter who was the only overallocated resource and those tasks are still blue. So the red tasks, the ones that were critical are still critical and the blue tasks, the ones that were noncritical are still noncritical. Now it's very important to know at any time when you're working on a project which the critical path and which the critical tasks are because they're the ones that you must complete on schedule in order for the project to finish on the currently planned finish date, whereas for the noncritical tasks such as ground floor doors here, we've got what is called slack. We can actually have a certain amount of delay on that task without delaying the overall project. And it's slack that we're going to look at next. Now again if I go to the Gantt Chart Tools Format tab and look in that Bar Styles Group, there is a checkbox there which can show a line to represent slack in a task. Now let's enable slack in this view. For each of the critical tasks, the red ones, there is no slack. But if you look at say this blue ground floor doors task here, you can see a little line coming out of the bottom of it. That line denotes the slack. Oh-oh!

In this section we’re going to look in more detail at customizing reports. And in order to do this I’m going to customize one of the most commonly used reports in Project 2016. Now if you’ve used an earlier version of Project you may be very familiar with the Project Overview. And in versions before Project 2013 the Project Overview looks very different to the way that it looks now. The one big advantage of the modern approach to a Project Overview is that it can be highly customized to suit your specific requirements. Now we’re using version 11 of the website project here and I’m going to go to the Report tab, go to the Dashboards and click on Project Overview. Now depending on themes, styling, etcetera your Project Overview may not look quite the same as mine but don’t worry about that because that won’t significantly change what we’re covering in this section for you. Now one thing you’ll note here is that I have got page breaks switched on. And I usually work with page breaks switched on. It’s not a completely foolproof way of judging how big a report is going to be because whereas some things, for example the width of that textbox are going to be of a fixed size other things such as the height of a table may vary depending on how many rows are in the table at any particular point that you create a version of a report. But I do tend to keep the page break markers on myself and that usually helps me at least with the width of a report. So let’s look now at the elements of this particular report. In the previous section I discussed the heading and once again here if I click within Project Overview you can see that it’s a textbox with the word Project Overview in it. You can also see that because of the way this Project Overview is made it’s actually rather carelessly put together because the textbox containing the word Project Overview is actually overlapping the text above the column chart on the right there. Now of course you don’t really see this because the textbox doesn’t have a border and the textbox itself is transparent. But sometimes when you do this kind of thing and particularly if for example the text in that textbox might be variable you could run into trouble. So I do tend to try to make sure that there isn’t really any possibility of the elements in my report running over each other. Now we’re looking here at the Project Overview. The first thing I’m going to do is to save this as my copy of a Project Overview. So I go to Manage, click on Rename Report, call it TA Project Overview. And in doing that I’ve now actually got two versions of the Project Overview. I’ve got the original version, Project Overview, and TA Project Overview is the one that I’m going to be working on.

In this section I'm going to start to look at costs in detail. I'm going to assume as usual that you've got a good basic knowledge of costs and I'm going to concentrate on some of the more advanced aspects of costs. Now in this section and the next one, I'm really going to concentrate on setting costs up and understanding what the options are. Reporting and in particular the new style of reporting in Project 2013 will have to wait for a later section of the course. Now in explaining some of the more advanced aspects of costs, I could probably occupy the whole of the rest of this course because there's actually quite a bit to it. So I'm going to concentrate on the costs associated with the work resources. So primarily in the example we're going to use this is going to be the cost associated with people. Having said that, almost all of the aspects we need to cover will be covered as part of that. And then right at the end of this part of the course, I'll look at some specific things relating to materials. So I'm going to go back to our website development project which is primarily about people. There's very little in the way of materials associated with this sort of thing. And then when we need to look at materials, we'll look back at our building project again. Now for the purposes of this and the next section, I've rescheduled the whole of the web development project to have started in February of 2013. So we're a little bit along the way now but so far, I haven't actually assigned any resources to this project at all and we've actually got no cost setup at all at the moment. So we're pretty much starting from scratch from the point of view of costs. Now let me look at a couple of basic aspects of cost that we're going to need available to us in this section. First of all, I'm looking at the Gantt Chart for this project now. I'm going to change the table. Currently, I have the default entry table selected. I'm going to choose the cost table and let's just talk very briefly about the cost table. Now the cost table contains basic information. As with any other table, I can customize it. I can insert and hide columns at will. But basically it has for each task a fixed cost column. It has a fixed cost accrual column. It has a total cost column. And then we have baseline, variance, actual, and remaining. Now of course the last ones here, baseline, variance, actual, and remaining will only start to occupied when we actually put some costs in. And then as we track progress as the project progresses, we'll see what the actual costs have been so far. We'll be able to look at the variance against the baseline at whatever point we decide to save the baseline and we'll be able to look at what the remaining costs are. But the first thing I want to look at are the first two columns here: fixed cost and fixed cost accrual. Oh-oh!

MS Project Planned Percentage Complete Vs Actual Percentage complete
 
09:24
https://niksprojects.com/ Tutorial on how to create a customized field like Baseline planned percent complete in Microsoft Project. In MS Project there is no default field available to calculate the Planned % complete or the Baseline % completed. In this tutorial I will explain how to create a customized field to capture planned % complete to compare it against the actual % complete. In this example I have used the Start date, Duration & Status date for the Planned percentage calculations. If you want to base your calculations based on the baselined version of the project then please change the Start to [Baseline Start] and Duration to [Baseline Duration]. All the formulas and details on how to create the baseline or planned % complete is available in my blog www.niksprojects.com/blog under Project Management tab. https://niksprojects.com/

A task is critical if it must be completed on schedule for the project to finish on schedule. We will also talk about filtering critical tasks, finishing slack, resource leveling, leveling only when available slack, and so on.

In this section we’re going to look at the Critical Path in Project 2016. In the preceding section we saved a baseline for our wedding project and now we’re going to look at the Critical Path. The reason that I want to look at the critical path now is because as we start to track progress on a project it’s very often the case that things start to go wrong. Things get delayed, they take longer than expected, perhaps cost increase. And any one time you may need to get back to a situation where you are saving time, you’re making up for slippage on a project. And when you need to make up for slippage what you really need to know is which tasks are really driving when this project is going to finish. The set of tasks that determine when a project is going to finish is called the Critical Path. And the tasks within the critical path are usually referred to as the Critical Tasks. So the first thing I’m going to do with the wedding project is to find out what our critical tasks are. Now in order to do that in Gantt Chart View if I go to the Format Tab in the Bar Styles Group one of the options there, there’s a checkbox, Critical Tasks. And if I check Critical Tasks it will show all critical tasks in red. Note the Screen Tip description there. A task is critical if it must be completed on schedule for the project to finish on schedule. So if I check Critical Tasks you can see that the red tasks are the ones that are actually determining when this project is going to be completed. Now sometimes, and particularly with a project with a lot of tasks in it, it’s difficult to see the critical tasks. They may be spread out quite a bit as are these. And there is a way of only showing the critical tasks. And in order to do that we’re going to look at another important aspect of views. So now I’m going to click on the View Tab and I’m going to apply a filter. Now in this case the filter I’m going to apply, note the control there with the little picture of the chemical filter there, is Critical Tasks. So the filter is called Critical. And now I only see the critical tasks in my project. Now it’s quite often the case when you look at the critical path on a project that it is a continuous critical path. What I mean by that is that for every day of the project from the very beginning to the very end there is at least one critical task happening. In this particular project that is not the case. There are I think three significant gaps. And sometimes gaps are completely explicable. They’re there for a good reason. No problem with them at all. Sometimes they can indicate that maybe there’s a problem with the way that you have your project setup. Let’s just take a quick look at a couple of the gaps here just to give you an idea of how these things can occur.

Project 2013 - Task Types & Scheduling Formula
 
14:38
In this video, users will learn how to understand the logic behind the scheduling formula in Microsoft Project. It is essential to apply the correct settings to tasks - Fixed Units (default), Fixed Duration, Fixed Work, if you want Project to update values on each task correctly as you add or remove resources on a task. It is one of the most challenging features if you don't understand it, yet one of the most powerful if you do and work with it instead of fighting it. Take the time to watch the entire video and your projects will be transformed! Enjoy!

In this section we’re going to look at Milestones. And Milestones are used to denote significant points or events in a project. Usually milestone tasks have zero duration but Project 2016 does allow milestones with non-zero durations as well. Milestones are used for a number of different purposes. And amongst the most important ones are as a way of providing a management snapshot of progress on a project. So there is for example a particular report called a Milestone Report where you can just view the key milestones in the project and get a summary of where you are in terms of those milestones which in turn gives you a good idea of general progress on the project. They can also be used to show you what’s coming up next, what’s happening say over the next week or the next month or the next few days. And very often milestones are associated with a payment schedule of some sort. So for example, when a particular point is reached in a project there may be a payment to make. Now what I’m going to do with the wedding project is to take some of the existing tasks and turn them into milestones. And I may well introduce one or two new milestones as I go through. Before I start note what I’ve done with the project at this stage. This is version 03 of the project. I have collapsed all of the summary tasks. Note that when I do this you can’t see all of the dependencies. So for instance, there is a dependency between a task in Wedding day and the setting of the wedding date. But because Wedding day is collapsed you can’t see that link. If I expand Wedding day that link is now visible Note the link from Book wedding venue, task 40, up to Set wedding date. But when Wedding day as a summary task is collapsed you can no longer see that link. So this just emphasizes the point that when you’re looking at a project with some summary task collapse you need to be careful at what you’re interpreting because some elements of the project may have become invisible even though they’re actually quite significant.

In the previous section we created a project containing just this little summary task, requirements, from our original project for the proposed implementation of a new website for Northern Farm Foods. And what we're basically going to do is to split the whole of this proposed implementation project into separate subprojects. Now before we continue with this exercise I want to take a look at that requirements project again and point out something very important about what's happened. So here is the requirements subproject and what I want to do is to look at the resource sheet. So I'm just going to switch to the resource sheet and take a look at it. And what you discover is that the resource sheet has a single resource on it. You may remember from the previous section that the overall implementation project had about seven or eight resources on it. One of them was Northern Farm Foods. The new project only has that one resource. Now the reason it's only got that one resource is that with the tasks that we pasted in when we created the project, the only resource specified was Northern Farm Foods. Now, at the moment, I've got both of these project open and as far as Microsoft Project's concerned not only are they two completely separate projects but they are two completely separate sets of resources. So although this project has a resource called Northern Farm Foods, the other project has a resource called Northern Farm Foods, as far as Microsoft Project's concerned those two are completely unrelated resources. And as we're going to see later on in the course one of the most important things we do when we start to look at a consolidated project is making sure that the resources that we're looking at are common where they need to be common. Having created this project not only have we created what is a separate project but we've also created a separate set of resources at the moment with just Northern Farm Foods. Note that when we created this requirements project, it didn't use the whole set of resources from the original project. It only created a set of resources containing the resource or resources that were actually in use in the tasks that are included in this requirements project. That is only the resource Northern Farm Foods. Okay, file that useful piece of information away somewhere for a moment and now we're going to return to the original project. So what I want to do now is to replace the requirement summary task in the original project with the new project which is totally devoted to the requirements work. So what I'm going to do, I select a task ID 3 there, click on Task, and then on the Insert Task dropdown here one of the options is Blank Row. I'm just going to select the Blank Row. Then I'm going to the Project Tab and the left most command there, Insert Subproject. Now Insert Subproject gives me the Insert Project dialog and this allows me to browse to a file, in this case NFF Requirements.mpp. Either double click or click and press Insert, and that project is now inserted into my main project. Now I can tell that it is a separate project because in the information column here I have the little Project icon there. Now it does appear a bit like a summary task. In fact, if you look at the marking on the right, although it's partly grayed out, it looks a bit like a summary task... Oh-oh!

Since we last looked at the wedding plan I’ve added quite a bit more detail to it in terms of the durations of many of the tasks and quite a few straightforward dependencies. So for example, if you look down at ID 20, Catering, within that there are two pairs of tasks, Make caterer shortlist and then Book caterer and Finalize menu. I’ve allowed fifteen days for making a shortlist of caterers and talking to them, making a decision about which one to book and then finalizing the menu with them. I’ve allowed fifteen days for each of those tasks. And then I’ve done the same for the baker, the baker who’s going to make the wedding cake. Now it may look from the current plan that we could get this wedding through very, very quickly. But as you can see one of the main issues is that we’re doing everything all at once right at the start of the project. And in reality that’s not what would happen. There just wouldn’t be enough time in a short period of time, of in this case a few weeks, to do all of those things at the same time. And as we’ll see later on in the course there are various factors, various reasons that will force us to spread these activities out over time. But for the moment I want to just leave the plan like this except for adding a few dependencies that are really very important. Now one situation that arises very often when you’re working on projects is that there are one or two key decisions to make. And there are certain things you must do before you make those key decisions and there are certain other things you can’t do until after you’ve made those key decisions. And what I want to look at first in this section is the very key decision of the wedding date, the date of the wedding itself. Now you can’t do everything before you decide on the date. So for example we talked in the previous section about making out the guest list and sending out the invitations. You can’t send out the invitations until you’ve set the wedding date. But you can’t set the wedding date until you know that the venue you’re going to use is available. You may also want to make sure that the venue you’re going to use for what we call in the UK the reception is available as well. But you are going to have to take some things on trust. So for example, you may have to say well I’m going to fix the wedding date and then see which photographers are available and book one of those photographers. So what I’m going to assume here in the wedding plan it that there are two or three key things that must happen before we can set the wedding date. And that from that point onwards various other things will be dependent on knowing that wedding date.

In the previous section we looked at setting up the resources that we're going to use in our building project. And I left you with an exercise where I asked you to add a carpenter as a work resource and door and window as material resources. And I'm looking now at the resource sheet in example_04. Now I appreciate that term carpenter normally implies a much more skilled resource than somebody who fits windows and doors. And in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and various other English speaking countries, the term joiner would be used. But I believe that term is no longer in use in the U.S.A. Similarly, there's a fairly common abbreviation for a carpenter or joiner working on a building site of Chipee but you wouldn't use that expression in the U.S.A. So we'll start with this list of resources and we're now going to assign these resources to various tasks in our building project. So I'm going to switch back to the Gantt Chart using the button on the status bar, left hand button takes me back to the Gantt Chart. Now I'm going to right click on the task Build walls, and when I right click, one of the items that I can see on the contextual menu is Assign resources. It's just below the midway point. Click on Assign resources and I see the Assign Resources dialog which is a dialog that you'll use a lot when you're working with Project 2013. Now quite a lot of this Assign Resources dialog we're going to look at later on. For instance, if I click on the plus sign here where it says Resource list options there are facilities there, for example, to filter. If I have a long list of resources and I want to find a suitable resource by filtering I can use the filter facilities. I can also look at finding out which resources are actually available for a task rather than being used elsewhere. But I'm not going to go into any of that at the moment. We're going to do some of those things later on in the course. For the moment, all I want to do is to allocate the brick layer to the task of building walls. Now the very simplest way of doing that is having selected the brick layer is to just click on the Assign button, and what happens if I just click on Assign is that the brick layer is assigned 100%. That means one brick layer. And depending on the cost figures, the cost of using the brick layer on that task is indicated here. Now at the moment I haven't put any cost in. We're going to come back to cost later on. But if I had put a rate per hour and possibly even an additional cost per use, then the total cost of using the brick layer on building those walls would be shown here. I could go through now and assign more resources to more tasks. The first thing I'm going to do though is to actually close this Assign Resources dialog and look at the impact of what I've just done on the Gantt Chart. Now you may not quite see the same as me here but if you're still using a default installation of Project 2013, you should see something pretty similar. And one of the things that's apparent is that you can now see the word Brick Layer next to the task in the Gantt Chart. Now exactly what you see in a Gantt Chart is something we're going to look at in some detail later on. You can customize and format a Gantt Chart but basically by default you would normally see the names of the resources that are used in a particular task listed next to the Gantt Chart bar. Now we'll be able to change that later on, but for the moment it's actually quite useful because we can see that we've got a brick layer resource allocated to the task of building walls. Oh-oh!

In this section, Toby discusses the task of building a house using a blank project, among other equally important basic features of MS Project 2013. Toby starts from a very simple house model that slowly morphs into one with added functional features. In this example, Toby covers the entire process--from entering a task, indicating the duration of each task, setting the project start date, up to saving the project. There are also other pieces of information that are automatically entered by Project as you are setting up the tasks in your project, and one of them is Task Mode, which could either be Auto Scheduled or Manually Scheduled. There's also an ID number given to every task entered. Learn more by watching this video!

We’re now going to get started on putting together a project and we’re going to use as our example the building of a house. Now, you may not be very familiar with house building but don’t let that worry you too much because even if you don’t live in a house you’ve probably seen houses and you must have some idea of how they are built. For instance, you’d understand that you need to build the floor before you build the walls and you’d need to build the walls before you put the roof on. We’re going to start with a very, very simple model of how to build a house and then we’re going to develop that throughout the course. In this section and the next couple of short sections, I’m going to introduce you to the most important basic features of Microsoft Project and then throughout the rest of the course we’re going to add a lot of detail to all of those things. Now I must admit that in the early stages this is going to seem like an incredibly simple house and in fact it’s going to seem as though it’s a pretty cheap house to build. But as we develop our project further on, you’ll realize that things aren’t quite as simple or quite as inexpensive as they appear early on. The other thing to bear in mind is that as we’re working away, particularly through these earlier sections, I’m going to show you one or two ways of doing things and later on I’ll show the alternative ways or many of the alternative ways. So you may find that if I do something in a particular way early on here you may prefer one of the ways that I show you later on. But I don’t want to get too bogged down in showing you all of the alternatives all of the time so I’m going to go for pretty straightforward options to begin with. And the first straightforward option we’re going to go for is I’m not going to be tempted to search for a template for building a house. I’m going to start with a blank project. So, on the start screen, Project 2013, just click on Blank project. Now I said I was going to use a very simple model for building this house, so the first thing we’re going to do is to prepare the site. Now when you’re entering the sequence of steps that have to be followed to do something, the sequence of steps that constitute your project, you can actually put them into Microsoft Project in any order you like. Even though I know that I’m not going to put the roof on first, I could put Put roof on as my first task, and then I could sort out the sequence later. But it does make a lot of sense to do things pretty much in the order that you intend to do them in the project. And the first task in this project is Prepare site so I’m going to enter that task into the project first.

In this section we’re going to look at the basics of assigning resources to tasks. In the previous section we set up a few resources for the wedding project. Clearly there are going to be many more. But let’s switch back to Gantt Chart View using the button towards the right hand end of the Status Bar. And I’m going to choose one of the tasks and assign resources to it. Select Agree budget and approach, right click, and click Assign Resources. Now that brings up the Assign Resources dialogue. And in the dialogue you can see a list of the available resources. Later on in the course we’ll look at the fact that as the number of resources available in a project grows you may need to filter this list in order to find a particular resource or resources that you need. But at the moment we’ve got such a short list of resources that it’s easy to find the one that we want to assign. I’m going to assign the bride and groom to this task. I’m going to work on the principle that the bride and groom are arranging this wedding themselves. I appreciate that in many situations it will perhaps be family members or other relations or friends that will be doing some or all of the organizing. But I’m trying to make this not too complicated. To assign a resource all I need to do is to select that resource, in this case the bride is already selected and then click on Assign. Now when I assign a resource to a task like that it doesn’t automatically close the Assign Resources dialogue. You note there a separate Close button. But what you can see if first of all the number of units. Well 100% represents one bride. So there’s one bride attached to that task which is just as well really because we only have one bride available. And the cost of the bride working on that task is zero. Don’t forget that the rate for the bride chargeable to this project is $0 per hour. So if she’s working on that task for ten days then she’s still not going to charge us any money for doing it. Now one very important point I’d like you to bear in mind here and this is going to become increasingly important later in the course. Is that the 100% means that the bride is working on this task fulltime. Now in reality it may well be that she is not working fulltime and that she’s actually doing her day job most of the time and she’s just spending a certain amount of time working on, in this case, the budget and approach to her wedding. But for the purposes of this particular project and this will not be the case for the bathroom refit, but for the purposes of this project all I’m going to do is treat that 100% as being all of the time that she has available. That doesn’t mean to say it’s a 40 hour week or an eight hour day or anything else. It just means that all of the time she’s got available she is going to spend on that task while that task is in progress. Now fortunately while that task is in progress she doesn’t actually have any other tasks on the wedding so she can spend all of her time on it. Sorry, we couldn't fit the entire video transcription here since YouTube only allows 5000 characters.

In this section we’re going to start to look at Resources. Resources include the people involved in a project, they include equipment and materials used, and various other types of resource, notably cost associated with a project. When you look at a Gantt Chart such as this one you’re primarily looking at tasks. The table on the left gives information about the tasks and the chart on the right gives a pictorial, a graphical representation of the scheduling of the tasks, their durations, dependencies, and so on. Now tasks and resources are basically the two building blocks of a project in Microsoft Project 2016. And we link the two together using what are called Assignments or Resource Assignments. In this section we’re going to look at Resources and in the next section we’re going to look at Resource Assignments. One thing that you may have noticed when we were using the View Tab before is that the first two groups on the left are Task Views and Resource Views. And largely speaking when we’re looking at a project we tend to be looking at tasks or at resources. But there are many views that enable us to look at both. And in particular to look at the relationship between them. Usually so far when we’ve been looking at tasks we’ve used Gantt Chart View. And for most people that is the view that they use most of the time. Of the Resource Views a very popular view is Resource Sheet View. And that’s the one that we’re going to look at first. So if I click on Resource Sheet, this spreadsheet gives us information about all of the resources in our project. And at the moment as you can see we have no resources in our project. Now we’re going to start to add some resources in just a moment. But before we do just look down at the right hand end of the Status Bar. Two of the main icons there are on the left here the button to take us to Gantt Chart View and three to the right, the one that looks just like a spreadsheet, that one takes us back to Resource Sheet View. So you’ll probably get used to switching between those two. The two views between them are also very commonly used. Task Usage which basically lists tasks and shows which resources are used in a task. And at the moment we have no resources so there’s nothing being used. And the next one is Team Planner View which can enable us to look at how the work on a project is distributed between a team. Now at the moment we have no team because we have no resources to put into a team. So let’s go back to Resource Sheet View.

In this section we're going to continue our look at Project consolidation and we're going to look at resource sharing. Now in fact resource sharing is not something that's restricted to use for consolidated projects. You can have a number of completely unrelated projects sharing resources. So when we're looking at resource sharing, I'm going to look at it in the context initially of a consolidated project but it's important to realize that the project consolidation is not an essential part of sharing resources. So let's suppose I've been given the job of looking after this testing subproject. So I'm going to open up the testing project and with the testing project, I know that I have resources. In fact, I've only got one at the moment, my Northern Farm Foods resource. But I'm now going to add myself as the project manager on this project so there we are. And I'm a work resource. My initials are going to be T-A. I'm not going to do anything to do with money at the moment. We're going to look at costs and so on later on. But I am now going to switch back into the Gantt Chart and I'm going to make myself responsible for some of the testing. So I select the testing task. I'm going to go to the Resource Tab, Assign Resources, and I'm offered the two resources that are part of this project. So I'm going to put myself onto that as a 50% resource. So I'm going to use half my time on doing that testing. That's closed. Don't worry about the warning there at the moment. That's not relevant to what we're doing here. And so now what I'm going to do is to just close that task again. Do I want to save the changes? Yes. So I've assigned myself to one of the tasks in that subproject. So as the project manager on my part of the project, I've made an update to my MPP file, to my project schedule which is one of the subprojects within the overall project. And now the project manager who's responsible for the whole thing wants to take a look at how progress is on the overall master project. So opens up the master project. One thing that happens when you open a master project like this one is that if you click on the View Tab and look at the other available windows, you only get the master project open. You don't get all of the individual projects opened as well. Certainly in the situation we're in at the moment, you don't anyway. So now the overall project manager decides to have a look at the NFF testing project. So expand that project and take a look. If I just scroll across here, you can see that Toby Arnott has been assigned 50% to that testing task which is what we did just now. So that's absolutely fine. If the overall project manager looks at his resource sheet, note on the resource sheet that he's got seven resources and those seven are associated with the master project. And then he's got two resources which are the two that are associated with the testing project, including Toby Arnott who's just been added. Now let's suppose that he decides that he wants to get Toby to do some work on the requirements project as well. So let's go back now to the requirements project. Let's expand it out and let's say that he wants Toby to spend a little bit of time on requirements definition. So he's going to assign Toby to that task, right click, assign resources, let's see who's available. But the only available resource is Northern Farm Foods. Oh-oh!

We’re starting this section from Wedding 05 and we’re going to look at Resource Leveling. The way we left things in the preceding section is that I had assigned the bride and groom to the tasks for which they have a level of involvement during the planning of the wedding. And we can see that both of them are significantly over-allocated, particularly during one period in the second half of December where they have a lot of different things to be doing all at once. You can see the specific tasks that are over-allocated with the indicator in the left hand column there in the display. And as I pointed out to you in the preceding section if we look at the Resource Sheet the two resources there that are marked in red are the ones that are over-allocated. And of course in something like this project we don’t really have the option of say having a couple of extra brides or a couple of extra grooms to spread the work over. In another project, such as for example the bathroom refit, if the tiler or the plasterer or the bathroom fitter had too much work to do you could possibly get a second person into help but that isn’t really an option for us here. Now one of the things that I mentioned in the preceding section, which is of course a very important thing to do, is to make sure that you have your default task type set correctly. Let’s just take a look at that now. On the Schedule page in Project Options in Scheduling Options for this project note that I have this project selected. So that’s Wedding 05. And the default task type I now have is fixed duration. Note also that I have the checkbox, New tasks are effort driven, is not checked. Now if I go back to this dropdown here, for all new projects my overall default is still a default task type of fixed units. So in the absence of a specific change for a specific project, that is if you like my default default it’s fixed units. You will obviously need to set that up in the way that suits you. It’s very likely when you are planning projects and as your projects progress that you will experience overallocation of resources and there are a number of ways of resolving these overallocations and we’re going to be looking at quite a few during the course. But before we do just one very important point to make is this. There isn’t some universal, if you like, panacea for overallocations. There isn’t one way of resolving overallocations, which is always the right way of doing it. The resolution of overallocations almost always involves understanding the underlying project, the underlying business, the underlying activity that your project relates to because you have quite a few, if you like, nobs and dials that you can adjust in order to get the best result when you’re resolving overallocations.
