1. What factors contribute to over allocation of resources on projects?
The task start and end date and the resource skill level.
The cost of the resource and the amount of non-project work the resource must do.
The cost of the resource and the project priority.
2. When attempting to resolve resource over-allocation, what aspect of the project plan should you try to change first?
Change the scheduled start or end date of a non-critical path task, using float to reposition the task to a time when resources are available.
Replan one of the tasks – by changing the “definition of done” or the method used to accomplish the task – so that the required amount of the constrained resource on that task is reduced.
Meet with project stakeholders to obtain additional resources.
3. What does it mean to “level” a project?
Modify the project plan so that the same number of tasks are underway at any time in the project.
Modify the project plan so that the amount of key resources required at every point in time on the project is approximately the same.
Modify the project plan so that there is equal spacing between project milestones.
