What is resource planning?
Resource planning is the process of determining the number or type of resources needed for a specific task within a team project. This includes deciding how many resources to allocate to your team members based on their skills and abilities.
The objective of resource planning is to identify, forecast and allocate various types of business resources such as human capital or business equipment. Strategic use of resources can help the management team become more efficient and effective.
How important are resources?
Resources can be anything from people to machines and things. They are everything you need to complete your project or task.
For a construction company, the resource might include a specific piece of equipment or tools. A software company needs computers and programmers. An event manager may need caterers and space. For the laboratory, you have rooms for experiments, specialized tools and materials. Since there are resources in each region, there is also a need for resource management.
Resource managers must anticipate resource usage levels. Forecasting helps managers anticipate the additional capacity they will need for ongoing projects or any shortfalls in resource utilization that may occur in the future.
ERP capability is a critical component of resource management. Resource capacity planning focuses on analyzing resource demand against resource availability. It aims to bridge the gap between capacity and demand ahead of the curve.
Imagine that today is your day off. You have some plans or maybe you are getting ready to lie down for the day. Either way, I think it would be very annoying to receive emails or Slack messages from your co-workers as if you were at work that day. They don’t really seem to notice your schedule. The same applies to the times when you are overwhelmed with work and yet you are being given more and more tasks. Or when you are a part-time employee who is famously invited to meetings that take place outside of business hours.
These situations can be avoided if you use a resource calendar and follow resource management best practices. It is essential to make your HR feel noticed and their schedule respected. When you have easy access to said schedule, it is very easy to keep track of their time. This, in turn, can increase the happiness of your employees.
capital (cost resources)
Capital is an investment in a company by its owners. In terms of project management and resource management, capital is anything for which costs incurred and expenses incurred are used and have a direct benefit from the completion of the project.
The use and scope of such equipment also falls into this category. (texajp_7)
