I work on a subproject, the timelines of most work packages we are managing are non critical.
In most cases, we have a scenario like this: Team A needs to work 10 days, but can do this anytime during a 3 month timeframe.
How can I put that into MS Project in a sensible way?
If I create a task that lasts 3 months:
- I am losing the information that they only need 10 days
- If they dont start immediately, it will look like a delay
If I create a 10 day task:
- I need to set it to start at a specific time. Although they are allowed to start working later, it would look like a delay.
It even gets more difficult when I consider that Team B has to work 5 days but can only start when Team A has completed their work but have to finish inside the same 3 month timeframe.
