Allow for Non Project Work

It's a reality that your resources are not likely to spend every minute of every work day devoted to project tasks. To allow for department meetings, administrative tasks, and other non-project work, you can adjust the project calendar, the resource calendar, or max units.

First, determine how much non-project work there is. If you're thinking of the project as a whole, adjust the project calendar. If you think of non-project work in terms of individual resources, adjust their individual resource calendars. For example, instead of defining a day as 8 hours long, you might define it as 6 or 7 hours. Changing the calendar directly affects the days and times when tasks are scheduled.
