Hi all,

Would it be possible to restrict the task start/finish constraint dates to not exceed the parent Phase constraints in a Bottom-Up Project? It will give a warning, but we are allowed to save. And would this be advisable?


Would it be possible to restrict Project Role start/finish dates to not be able to exceed Project Timeframe?


Would it be possible to restrict Assignment of a resource start/finish dates to not exceed the start/finish dates of the role to which the resource is assigned?


Do you see any pitfalls to making these enhancements?


Br,

Morten

Hello Morten,

I hoped that someone who has already implemented some similar logic might comment here out of experience, but as it has not happened up to now, I will try to provide some general comments.

  • I think what you are trying to achieve should be OK in principal.
  • In order to minimize the risk of problems occurring, I would suggest you do avoid raising error messages (as they could interfere with the program logic) and stick to using warning messages instead.
  • I also think it would be better if you do not try to interfere with the scheduling logic in any way. Maybe your checks can all be implemented as post exits of the user input validation method of the relevant WebDynpro Component views.

Sorry if I cannot be any more specific.

Best Regards

Francesco
