Resource Levelling (Definition)

Resource levelling is the part of the scheduling process in which the start and end dates of tasks are driven by resource limitations (e.g. limited availability of resources or difficult-to-manage resource levels). Among the scheduling objectives, is to ensure that resources are not overburdened (don’t schedule more resources for a period than are available) and that (as much as possible) there are not significant peaks and valleys in the resource schedule. There are two outcomes from resource levelling - a) if there is affixed end-date, additional resources may need to be allocated; or b) if the end-date is not fixed, but resources are fixed, the duration may need to be extended.
