I'm working on a school project and we are having trouble updating our MS Project 2016 file.
For a little background: The tasks all have fixed duration and some have dependencies on others being completed. We baselined the file the day we started the project.
We then completed task one about three days past the finish date listed in project. If I update the line to say it's finished three days late, it pushes all other tasks after to be started three days later, resulting in the project itself being late by three days.
We compensated for the lost three days by working more resources on the following task, finishing that task in the original finish date for that task, not the new one that Project created for it because the first task was finished late. We did this because cost was not an issue, but deadline is.
How do I correct for this in the Project file? Do I remove the dependencies so things don't auto-adjust?
