Project Insight Project Management Software Releases New Resource Capacity Features

IRVINE, CA--(Marketwired - June 16, 2015) - Cloud based project management software provider, Project Insight, announced the release of advanced resource capacity functionality to assist project and resource managers with understanding resource needs.

As many project teams have resources that do not work 100% of their time on projects, varying levels of allocation and capacity can be set. Now resource managers and project managers can set thresholds on each resource for:

  • Capacity percent -- the percentage of a person's workday that she or he is available for project work.
  • Utilization percent -- the percentage of the capacity percent that should be used as the ideal target utilization. If the capacity is 80% of a 40 hour work week (32 available hours), 75% utilization would target the resource's ideal allocation at 24 hours per week (75% of 32).
  • Capacity percent maximum -- the absolute threshold that a resource should be booked and if overbooked an alert will appear.

"As many of our customers work on client-facing projects, they need a reliable way to understand the overall project demand and capacity, in order to provide clients with realistic, attainable project schedules," remarked Cynthia West, VP of Project Insight. "Adding more fields for various thresholds permits them to understand resource needs in a more granular fashion."
