Parallel phases and automatic rescheduling (cprojects)

Hi,

Let's think we assing start date to phase 3 to make parallel phase. In this condition, scheduling is not possible. phases after phase 3 is scheduled in accordance with phase 3, so when phase1 finished early, while start date of phase2 changes, phase 3 date is not change because of start date. therefore, phases after phase 3 cannot be scheduled. Can we make the scheduling in accordance with relationship between tasks? Thank you..

    Hi,

    You can do scheduling as per task dependency across different phases of Project. In standard it will not allow you to do this. You need to implement BADI DPR_SCHEDULING for strict bottom scheduling. I am sure this information will help you. let us know if you face any issue.

      Hello Mariano

      We also implemented the BADI as mentioned above and was able to achieve parrallel phases. However now scheduling is driven by tasks and no longer by phases - so a bottom up approach is required. We created tasks for each of the phases (and in some cases only a single "dummy"task with the same description as that of the phase) and then set a relationship between all of these tasks between the phases; this was all done in the cProjects templates so that it would be there as default for the end user. Once the end user then create their Items/Projects they have all the standard tasks as well as the relationships between these tasks (and always at least one task per phase with relationships) - the user may then add additional tasks and change the relationships, but scheduling "bottom up"is taking place and the phases and Project level gets updated automatically
