How can Critical Chain as a scheduling approach be applied using only Microsoft Project 2010 with no add-ins or additional software? What settings and options need to be used, and what task types.


1 Answer 1


Sorry, Project does not use critical chain methodology - only critical path. There are add ins (ProChain for example) but not native to the product.

  • That's what I suspected. Is there any suggested customisations, VBA or work arounds though? A third party add-in is not an option for my organisation. Commented Jan 7, 2015 at 12:50

    If you use your favorite search engine and search for Agile in Microsoft Project, you'll see a variety of resources ranging from YouTube videos. Here's a link to the MS project webcasts. Take a look at Tim Runcie's webcast from Dec 2013. blogs.office.com/2013/08/12/microsoft-project-webcast-series
