Dynamic scheduling task dependencies

Dynamic scheduling task dependencies

Dynamic scheduling uses task ordering rules to prioritize the list of tasks to be assigned. Where applicable, task dependencies override the task ordering rules.

  • A task with one or more downstream tasks cannot be unassigned.
  • If a downstream task is assigned and the upstream task gets reassigned, dynamic scheduling attempts assign the upstream task before the start of the downstream task.
  • If a task has an upstream task that is unassigned, the downstream task does not get assigned.
  • If a task has an upstream task that is assigned, the downstream task does not start until the upstream task is completed.
  • If a task has an upstream task that is assigned a lower priority, the downstream task is not assigned until the upstream task is assigned.
