Can Deadline be used to automatically adjust schedules

Post by NTT »

I am trying to set a dead as the absolute latest a project can finish, therefore any risks or delays in tasks should result in them being set to start earlier with the results Gantt. Do you know if this is possible? I am trying to have the risk show tasks having to start earlier to meet the fixed deadline rather than extend out beyond it.

With deadlines the results will only show that it fails to meet the deadline. It does not compress the schedule as you would like. Typically, schedule compression or acceleration requires a complete rework of the schedule including adding additional resources, more parallel activities. etc as required.
The only thing we can offer is generating a new schedule from the results using the export to xml feature. In this case you would have to find p level that meets the deadline. However, this schedule could be very optimistic depending upon the P level selected.
