Resource leveling (leveling: Resolving resource conflicts or overallocations by delaying or splitting certain tasks. When Project levels a resource, its selected assignments are distributed and rescheduled.) is a way to fix resource overallocation (overallocation: The result of assigning more tasks to a resource than the resource can accomplish in the working time available.). Generally, resources are leveled in two ways:
   By delaying (delay: The amount of time between the scheduled start of a task and the time when work should actually begin on the task; it is often used to resolve resource overallocations. There are two types of delay: assignment delay and leveling delay.) a task until the assigned resource has time to work on it.
   By splitting (split task: A task whose schedule is interrupted. For example, a two-day task that does not require contiguous work might be split so that the first day of work is scheduled for Monday, and the second day is scheduled for Thursday.) a task so that part of a task is done when planned and the rest of it is done later when the assigned resource has time.
You can delay or split tasks yourself, or you can have Microsoft Office Project 2003 do it for you, using the Resource Leveling feature. In addition, there are other methods you can use to balance the resource workload. The methods you choose to reduce overallocations depend on the limitations of your project, including budget, resource availability, finish date, and the amount of flexibility available for scheduling tasks.
