Resource, different shift %

Resource, different shift %

Resource, different shift %

Fairly new to ms project, and trying to see if we can shoehorn it into a schedular for our business. An engineer to order business, that repeatedly makes fairly similar parts.

So we get a new order to produce a 4 units of an item. It has an operation/task that uses an arc-welding workstation. During the day shift we have 2 arc welding stations available so that 2 seperate items can be worked on at the same time.

During the evening shift only one operator is available so only 1 unit can be worked on.

I was planning on setting the resource calander to show it as 16 hours a day, and 200% available. But that would only work if we had 2 operators for the evening shift.

If i set it up as 2 seperate resources, I would then have to pick which item goes to which resource and the scheduling aspect begins to get very complicated.

Is there a correct or better way to do this ?
