I am new to Project and, rather than spending anymore time reading the web, I thought I'd appeal to some experts.
In our company we often schedule tasks similar to the made-up one just below.
We are redesigning the blue widget.
One of the tasks associated with this is creating a new drawing of the widget.
We estimate it will take a Jr. Mechanical Engineer (ME1) 10 hours and it will take a more experienced Sr. Mechanical Engineer (ME3) 2 hours. We assume/allow these hours to be spread out over the task's duration, which is 2 weeks.
How do I do this in Project '13?
I've already figured out how to enter their hourly rates.
The task should be set up in such a way that I can change the duration without impacting the 10 + 2 hours they are allowed to spend.
Keeping the 10 + 2 fixed is important because we want to use Project to estimate the task's cost.
