Can I use predecessors to drive both the Start and End dates for a single task?
My schedule has two sets of high level tasks. One from the Engineering side and one from the Business side. We have a nice work breakdown from the engineering side, but it doesn’t cleanly align with the items from the business side. We were hoping that we could use dependencies to drive the dates for the line items on the Business side.
For example I tried setting BusinessItem1 as having a SS dependency on EngineeringItem1 and a FF dependency on EngineeringItem2 in hopes that this would drive both of those dates and calculate the duration based on the difference between these dates.
This didn’t work, it respects the FF link and generates the correct end date and assigns a 1 day duration.
Is there a way to drive both of these dates WITHOUT breaking up each of the Business Items into multiple tasks?
