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. I'm doing a feasability analysis for an early fase project. I'm trying to build different scenarios with respects to resources and time. I have around 100 activites. I've set Original Duration and Budgeted Labour units. When i use Shift+F9 i still get over-allocated resources. In the schedlog.txt - 4 activites are listed as "Activites that cannot be leveled". I see no reason why they cannot be leveled. Any clues?

 

Cheers

 

Haakon

Thank you guys. William, spot on! Rounding error led to marginal overallocation.

 

Cheers

make sure your budgeted units/time is lower or equal to max units/time.

One potential reason: if the number of assigned resources exceeds the number of available resources.

I cannot imagine other reasons without looking at your project. If you will delete confidential information (usually costs) and will upload xer file at some file exchange site we may look at it to find the source of your problem.
