Answer the following questions (you may use MS Project Help): 1) What are the three base calendars included in MS Project and what are the default values of each?
Standard - Default base calendar, Monday to Friday, 8 to 5, lunch noon to 1. This is the default base calendar used for the project, for tasks and for resources.
Night Shift - Usually for graveyard shift, 11 PM to 8 AM, five days a week, lunch 3 AM to 4AM.
24 Hours – Work never stops here. Typically used for projects in a manufacturing situation, midnight until midnight 7 days a week.
2) What is the difference between a base calendar and a resource calendar?
Resource Calendars apply to only specific resources.
3) Why schedule one project meeting after completion of the last task, Test System?
We should - as a final meeting to discuss how the project went as a whole.
4) Give an example of when you would assign a 24-hour calendar to a resource.
24-Hour calendars would be used in situations where a consultant is being used to complete a fixed-cost task
5) If you were doing a senior project, what would be the base calendar you would use for students working on the project and what adjustments would you make to it?
The base calendar I would use would probably be the 24-hour calendar because there would not be a set time each task will be worked on.
