Defining Resource Capacity for Projects

Defining resource capacities or resource availability in a shared resource pool.

Capture all resources in a central resource pool, including personnel with professional qualifications, team affiliations, as well as materials and machinery.

You can assign one or more of the following attributes to each resource:

• Availability (Work schedule, days off)

• Roles (Professional skills)

• Organizational unit (Teams)

• Costs (Deployment costs)

• Other customizable features (Notes)

When you are managing multiple projects simultaneously, a well-maintained resource pool is essential. This is because all projects that can be grouped in the project portfolio should have access to the same resource pool.

The professional qualifications and role assignments of the employees recorded in the resource pool serve as the basis for matching resource requirements with available resources.
