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.

I have this situation:

Duration activities are  1 hour in level activities to share (corect) resources



Duration activities are  30 min ; in level activities to share resources ; incorect results.


P6 dont level activities with small duration (minutes) ?

Any software should handle resource leveling down to the minimum duration you can assign to an activity, you got to be missing something. I do not use P6 but see it can display 1/100 minutes.

Try checking Activity Duration Type.

If the above does not works then I suggest trying with the following simple schedule from scratch and see what happens. One resource A and one resource B units are available. There are no activity links, very simple. Even if one second activities it should do it.

Good luck.

You might want to look at the "Max unit / time" on the resource which assigned to those activities.

See if the max unit/time still allow the resource to be executed on the same hour or not..
