For instance adding additional instances of the resource that is over-allocated would be one way to resolve the issue. Another way to resolve the over-allocation would be to extend the timeline or a combination of this and adding additional resources. In either of these instances, it would require approval of both the project owner and project manager in order to be accomplished. We could also examine our timeline for any float or slack and make adjustments accordingly. Some ways this over allocation can be addressed to resolve this issue is given below: Assigning overtime work for the facility specialist – The over allocation is due to the facility specialist being allocated more than the 8 hours that he would have to work on any given day.
Hence, in both conditions, speed has a cost. But discussion is not limited to this cost. For speedy construction, one has to invest more on materials, labour or on technologies and this can be considered as cost of speed. This cost goes on increasing in case there is a large gap in the supply and demand. Recently concluded
Job Prioritisation – A list of activities needed to complete in order of relevance, priority and importance. It sets out realistic timeframes and creates a broader understanding of what would have the most consequence if not completed in the allocated timeframe. It recommends what has to be completed first for the greatest efficiency in the workplace, taking goals and final deadlines into account. The biggest and more time consuming tasks should be prioritised first, managing the smaller tasks for possible delegation. This clears the mind of overload and sets out objectives that need to be done, then forwarding the priority lists to a weekly and or monthly
Each repetition integrates another part of the solution until the nth repetition, when the final part of the solution is integrated and the project moves to the closing step. An incremental model is most used to get a partial product, service, or process into user's hands faster than any alternative model. The added risks are often much higher than if a linear model had been chosen. There must be a clearly defined goal as well as a clearly defined solution to use this approach. If the solution is not clearly defined, Agile techniques are better suited (Wysocki, 2013).
This is timeline of the project from its design to the operational stage. For example, the team is required to allocate time to each development stage and ensures that all requirement and development of the project is done within the stipulated time. Provision of timeline is important in project development because it helps project management team to countercheck the progress of the development (Carr, 2009). At this stage the project planning team is mandated to consider labour required towards the development of the project. These will include number of managers, supervisors and workers needed for the project development based on the number of activities involves in the project development.

Goods and services procured will be done under fixed-price contract Request for Quotation (RFQ). The project team will work closely with the supply chain department to give actual specification of goods and services and expected date of delivery. The supply chain department will request for bids from vendor/supplies. The PM along with team and supply chain department will meet to decide on the category of procurement to meet project needs. The supply chain department is required to confirm all the prerequisites are met.
Clients often need to be made to realize that if a project is to be completed at a certain level of quality, then a certain amount of time and money need also to be invested in the project. Projects that have time restrictions will need to increase the resources assigned to it or have the quality or scope reduced. The well known triple constraint formula is Cost * Schedule=Quality. The Right Balance By understanding the triple constraint and the ramifications associated with adjusting any one of its components, you will be able to plan your projects better, analyze project risks and protect the company from the problems of unrealistic client expectations. You will also be properly equipped to balance out the triple constraint when any adjustment has been made to one or more of its elements.
