Rampup on MSProject

Rampup on MSProject

Rampup on MSProject


I have a task under MSProject which corresponds to an action whose duration does not depend on the number of resources.
I would like to integrate resources on this task gradually.

On the first day, 2 resources are on the task, 3 more the next day, 1 more the following week and so on.

How do you model this rampup in the allocation of resources to a single task?

If I add a resource in the gantt, it arrives directly on the first day of the task.

I tried to set the resource to 50% when it gets to half the duration of the task, but that doesn't reflect reality since the ressource could be 100% on something else elsewhere.

The only way I have found is to go to the "resource usage" tool and put 0 on the days when the resource is not assigned to the task .... But it is not easy to put in practice as soon as there are many tasks.

If anyone knows how to make it easier, I'm interested :)

Thank you all.
