Dear Experts

I am working as a project planner, mainly product development project plannings with a lot of engineering tasks which I have all scheduled from a starting date onwards and then resulting in an end date.

Now the question I need to answer is how can we speed up a project?
Is there for example a type of resource which is the bottle neck?
What would the effect be if we would use additional external resources?

Please share your experiences.

Dear Dennis

Perform different scenarios to analyze what is the impact of assigning more resources. Just create as many duplicates of your schedule you want saving them under a different file name. Input the assumptions on each schedule and compare the outcomes.

You can try the following recommendations
Adding resources such as instead of one engineer/crew assign two to same activity.
Alternatively split the activity into chuncks that can work at same time or with some overlap.
Adding shifts such as a crew working during the day and another crew working at night on same activity
Increasing the overlap of activities.
Changing the whole crew includding equipment to a higer production crew.
