MULTIPLE SHIFTS USING PROJECT 2002

MULTIPLE SHIFTS USING PROJECT 2002

MULTIPLE SHIFTS USING PROJECT 2002

(OP)
I am looking for a way to manage a task that will be worked around the clock using the same resource with that resource available in 2 shifts.  How can this best be accomplished using MS Project?  

Any help would be greatly appreciated

RE: MULTIPLE SHIFTS USING PROJECT 2002

You should be able to create a calendar just for that resource, making it available during the hours for both shifts.

RE: MULTIPLE SHIFTS USING PROJECT 2002

Like naygoo I had the same constraint and I solved it by creating a calendar juste for that ressource.

I have tried many other ways so if it can save you some time good !

RE: MULTIPLE SHIFTS USING PROJECT 2002

(OP)
First, thank you both for your responses.  I have tried this approach but it will not meet my need.

Perhaps I should further explain the scenerio.  I need to manage a turnaround with a scope of >2000 tasks.  The majority of the jobs will be worked 6 am - 6 pm each day, 6 days a week.  Within the scope there will be a few jobs that need to be worked around the clock in order to meet the deadline.  The resource for those jobs are Boilermakers, of whom I have 24 total available.  There are a number of jobs also requiring Boilermakers that will be worked only 6:00 am - 6:00 pm.  So what I need to do is have 20 of the boilermakers working the 6 am - 6 pm shift and 4 working 6 pm - 6 am.


Other scheduling packages handle this by utilizing
'shifts' which is almost like a calendar within a calendar.

Any ideas based on my expanded description?

thanks
