Project 2010: Introducing User-Controlled Scheduling
In Project 2010, we have introduced a new concept called "User-Controlled Scheduling". It’s a collection of features designed to make Project a more flexible planning and schedule management tool. The idea is that you, as the project manager, can have complete control over when a task should happen. If and when appropriate, you can leverage Project’s powerful scheduling engine to help forecast the date of a task based on various factors like dependencies, calendar, constraints, etc. But at any time, you have the flexibility to manually override Project’s automatic calculations.
Modeling Tough Scheduling Problems with Project Management Software
Despite year-over-year growth in the use and capabilities of Project Management software, many common scheduling problems remain difficult to represent and manage using these tools. Software alone cannot address fundamentally tough problems, including: resource leveling, representing task dependencies — hard and soft, managing difficult-to-predict or quickly-changing work assignments, making schedules easy to maintain during project execution Solving these problems require analysis of a project’s objectives, constraints, risks, and opportunities. They require a thinking human being to guide scheduling software.
