Leveling overallocated resources
TIP Although the effects of resource leveling on a schedule might be significant, resource
leveling does not change who is assigned to tasks nor the total work or assignment unit
values of those assignments.
For example, consider the following tasks, all of which have the same full-time resource
In this split view, the Resource Graph view appears below the Gantt Chart view. On day 1,
the resource is overallocated at 200%. On day 2, the resource is fully allocated at 100%. On
day 3, he is again overallocated at 200%. After day 3, the resource is fully allocated at 100%.
When you perform resource leveling, Project delays the start dates of the second and third
tasks so that the resource is not overallocated.
