During any construction project you could face a problem where the resources for a group of activities are limited to x number. In this post i will explain how to let the orcale primavera calculate the start and the finish dates of the activities based on resources limitations.
1- Assume we have the following schedule which contains 5 activities and each activities is assigned with two resources, Test2, and Test 3.
2- we will now add limits to the resources test2 and test3 maximum 2 per day as per the following:
A- Open the resources tap from the enterprise tap as per the following figure
B- Select the resource i.e (resource 2) and then set the max unit /time 2/d as per the following figure
3- We need to tell the primavera program to respect the maximum resource limits we assigned. If you run the primavera programme now you not see any changes. In order to see the changes , you need to go to schedule options as per the following figure
Then select the level resources during schedule as per the following figure
Now you can run the primavera programme to see the differences
Please note that this method could return a misleading total floats. However, it is useful to estimate the completion date for some activities with limited resources.
