Project tasks time minimum

Is there any project management software that will allow a task to have a duration of less than a minute?  Is there a way for Microsoft Project to all for this?  (setting ".5 minute" does not really work)

The minimum time unit for duration is 1 minute.
Up to an including MSP 2013 - and I'm pretty sure it continues this wayUser generated image
What is it that you are attempting to do?
Does the time unit actually matter?

It does matter.  We use project to track a roll over of a disaster recovery plan, and there are some steps that take 15 seconds to complete.  If we put it down as 0 minutes then it becomes a mile stone  which distorts the critical path.  if I mark the time as 1 minute then, since there are 200 tasks in this project; it invalidates my timeline.
Thanks. I understand now. I'm afraid there is nothing more i can suggest.
