Adjusting project template based on qty RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking at switching our manufacturing process to Project. Our processes are complicated but mostly set. There are a number of parts that would be good candidates for sub-projects and I would like to build these out as templates. My question has to do with adding the sub-project and adjusting steps based on qty.

    There are a number of steps that remain the same regardless of the qty, such as ordering materials. There are also a number of steps that are definitely dependent on quantity, such as machining parts (for example, each part takes 10 minutes to machine, so if I am adding the sub-project to an order for 500 units, I need the time for machining to be roughly 2 weeks... if the order is for 1000 units, I need the project to allocate 4 weeks.

    How do I do this?
