Option #2: Resource Schedule
You have determined the following schedule for a project in which the key resource is a backhoe. You receive a call from your partner, Delvin, who desperately needs one of your backhoes for four days. You tell Delvin you would be willing to let him have the backhoe if you are still able to complete your project in 13 days. Develop a resource schedule in the loading chart that follows, to see if it is possible lend Delvin a backhoe for four days, and still complete the project in 13 days. Be sure to record the order in which you schedule the activities using scheduling heuristics. No splitting of activities is possible. Can you say yes to Delvin’s request?
