]po[ Resource and Capacity Management helps you to
Finding the right ratio between effort and results is crucial. Answers to the following question might help to determine what level of Resource Management is right for your organization:
High Level Resource Planing allows you to plan your resources by providing defining the % of total time an employee is involved in a task or project.
The above screenshot reads as follows: User 'Bobby Bizconsult' is using 50% of his total availability on this task.
The Resource Cube as shown below is available at each Projects 'Home' page (Portlet: "Project Gantt Resources") and gives an overview about the capacity on a project level and across all projects managed by the system.
It aggregates on:
Please read as follows:
For the period chosen, 'David Developer' works 50% of his available time on 'Main Project'.
He's working 20% of week 30 on that project.
Please note that the assignment of % needs to happen either on a project level or on a task level.
Avoid assigning values on both levels since this might lead to inconstancy.

The horizontal axis shows for all internal employees the fāollowing information:
|Workload:||Ratio of number of days the user is assigned to projects and his capacity|
|Workdays:|| Number of workdays that can be assigned to projects.
This value is calculated as follows:
Number of weekdays (Monday-Friday)
- Absences (vacation, training, other)
- Bank Holidays
|Capacity||Number days a user not assigned to projects|
|Vacation:||Vacation days, includes also vacations not yet approved|
|Training:|| Number of days reserved for training
|Other Absences:|| Sick days, travel
The vertical axis shows all projects (independed from their project status) having either start-date or end-date in the period selected.
The days available are calculated as: Number of days planned - Number of days logged for each project and their respective sub-projects.
