Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi members,


I am working on my first Turnaround schedule on P6 8.2. 24x7, 2 shifts schedule. I have to assign 50% of my resources in the night shift and 100% in the day shift. I tried to use Task dependent activities and creating Shifts under 'Resource Shift'

When i assign shift to my resources and click on 2, it goes back to 1 automatically. I'm not able to create a schedule with 2 shifts. Therefore I changed all my activities to 'Resource dependent' and duration type to 'Fixed duration and Units' hence calculating no of resources. I have created different calendars for my day/night crew. Everything is working perfect but I am still in doubt if client will accept it or not considering all the activities are Resource dependent.

Please let me know if I am missing some point or doing it the wrong way before i submit my schedule.


thanks for your time and help
