    critical chain scheduling (2000)

    has anyone figured a way to implement critical chain scheduling with MS Project, without an add-on product?

    Have you tried working with the PERT Tools?

    the PERT tools will help with determining the duration, but don't really address the kind of resource loading and determination of critical chain, buffer calculation and placement, reporting on buffer utilizaiton, etc. that one needs to schedule and manage a project using the critical chain techniques. One add-on tool I know of is Pro-Chain - I was hoping that a reasonably proficient MS Project user could make Project work without added expense for another product.

    I'll step aside, and await that reasonably proficient user myself ...
