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 wayminimum unit is: Minutes
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.
