Schedule Model

Postby graghu_81 Thu Aug 24, 2017 5:14 am

Schedule model may need more than 1 project calendar to allow for different work periods.
Does this mean that the project may have more than 1 project calendar (Working days and shifts of scheduled activities) ?
Can you elaborate this ?

Project will have on 1 project calendar during the duration of the project.

what it means is that within the project some of the tasks can use a 24 hours workday and some other may have restriction of say 8 hours or some tasks can only be done within specific time range.

So when you are scheduling the project you need to use different calendars for activities, in general project will have only one project calendar but some activities do not follow that standard calendar.

Lets take an example of airport construction project.
Activity related to digging, etc which are noisy cannot be done in night so scheduling tool will follow say morning 8 to evening 7 time project calendar for such activities while scheduling

activity related to say internal wiring of terminal etc can be done 24*7 so scheduling tool will follow 24 hours project calendar for such activities while scheduling
