Delaying the start of assignments

bound galley proof costs $15. Later in this chapter, you’ll specify the unit quantity
of the material resource when you assign it to tasks. Project will then calculate the
cost of the material resource assignment as the per-unit cost that you entered above
times the number of units on the assignment.
The Material Label field applies only to material resources.

So far in this chapter, you’ve focused on resource details. For the remainder of the chapter,
your focus shifts to fine-tuning assignment details.
Delaying the start of assignments
If more than one resource is assigned to a task, you might not want all the resources to
start working on the task at the same time. You can delay the start of work for one or more
resources assigned to a task.
For example, assume that four resources have been assigned a task. Three of the resources
initially work on the task, and the fourth later inspects the quality of the work. The inspector
should start work on the task later than the other resources.
