I’m trying out Project 2013 to use to run a test lab, so apologies for the noob question. This seems like a basic scenario but what I’ve found on this forum is “Project doesn’t work like that”:
I have a machine and an operator that are needed to complete a test. If I assign both the machine and the operator as a resource, Project seems to plan either-or depending on each resource’s availability. How do I “explain” to Project that both are needed at the same time to complete the task?
A simple example: Alice needs to drive the car to the grocery store, and Bob needs to drive to the laundromat. Both tasks have the car and the person assigned. Alice and the car get scheduled for the morning just fine. When I schedule the laundromat task, it assigns Bob to start first thing in the morning, and the car to start after Alice gets back from the store. How do I get Project to hold off scheduling Bob’s time until the car is back from the grocery store?
