This course focuses on MS Project’s resource management functionality. We will cover features such as:

  • Cost, Work and Material resources: When and how to use each type
  • Work resource costs and availability: Set different cost structures for different tasks and schedule leave and wage increases throughout your project
  • Resource assignments: Outsmart MS Project and learn how to master resource assignments so that you don’t have to spend time fixing work, duration and units
  • Extract Information: Filter, highlight and report on your Project data dynamically with custom views, filters and fields

This course is designed for users of Microsoft Project who already have a good understanding of using the program for Task Management and want to expand their skills in Resource Management.

Students must have completed the ACE Training course Project – Task Management and we recommend students have applied learnt skills to at least one project, or have equivalent experience.

You should have a good understanding of all of the following:

  • Tasks including duration, start and finish times
  • Summary and sub-tasks
  • The four types of link between tasks (FS, SS, FF, SF)
  • Lead and Lag times
  • Split Tasks
  • Constraints and deadlines
  • The difference between Duration and Work
  • The Baseline
  • Tracking
  • Printing and Reporting
  • Working with multiple projects

This course is designed to teach you all about resourcing projects and customising the product to suit your needs. Focussing on customising tables, fields, filters and groups.

You’ll leave this course with the knowledge and skills to manage resource constrained projects in MS Project and report on key information without huge effort and time delays.
