Consider two tasks (Task 1 and Task 2), as well as two resources (Developer 1 and Developer 2). Task 1 and 2 respectively require 1 and 2 days from start to finish.
I want to make the following resource assignment in Microsoft Project:
- Developer 1 allocates 50% of his time working on Task 1.
- In parallel, and using any remaining time, Developer 1 helps Developer 2 to work on Task 2.
In this way, once Developer 1 finished working on Task 1, he should allocate 100% of his time to work on Task 2. That is, Task 2 requires (1.5 + 2) * 8 = 28 man-hours.
Here's a screenshot of what I achieved in MS Project:
My question is: How to allocate 50% of Developer 1 for the first day of Task 2, and 100% of him for the second day of Task 2.
