TASK SPLITTING IN MICROSOFT PROJECT

Task Splitting is normally switched on in Microsoft Project and users end up with splits at the start of a task which is quite difficult to sort out. If you wish to understand how Task Splitting in Microsoft Project works then this article is an extract from the books written by Paul Harris, click on this link>>>.

Splitting a task puts one or more breaks in a Task, leaving:

  • The Duration value unchanged with a Fixed Units task but the elapsed duration is increased,
  • The Duration value changed with a Fixed Duration task to equal the elapsed duration, and
  • Resources assigned to a split task are not assigned work during the splits:

How Microsoft Project Calculates Durations in Days

Microsoft Project effectively records task durations in hours and the value of the duration in days is calculated using the parameter entered in the Hours per day: field in the File, Options, Schedule tab, Calendar options for this project: section.

It is VERY IMPORTANT that all users understand that the durations in days are calculated using ONLY the one parameter and this parameter is used with EVERY calendar. This makes Microsoft Project difficult to use when calendars with a different number of hours per day are being used.
