Posted on 2011-10-12
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have a MPP file that are not yet resource-leveled. Is it possible that if I let MS Project to do the leveling for me, the results may differ slightly when I do this, say, on different computers? I am just curious how such MS Project decides how to level the resources.

Thank you

    It is mainly driven by the available units for the resources and the relative priority(1...1000, higher value indicates higher priority for the tasks) . I do not thik that levelling will vary from machine to machine.
    Before you level, please make sure that you have resources assigned for tasks with appropriate %availability, dependencies between tasks are set , tasks are assigned right priority.
