Resource Mgmt

Postby KaurP Sun Aug 12, 2018 6:07 pm

After creating network diagram PM estimate resource requirement (type and quantity needed for the activities) and then estimate activity and cost durations.

PM does check the resource availability (Resource Calendar) while performing Estimate Activity Resource process as it affects the project schedule.

Can you tell me how does PM estimate resource requirement during first time when the resource calendar is not yet created. Does he assume that resources will be available and share an estimate basis that and during go-back iterations if in case there is an issue getting commitment for the resources, change request is raised, only if required?

Not all inputs and all T and T are used in the first pass of the process.
when creating SND for the first time, the resource requirement are estimated but when actual resources are identified based on the availability and competance the SND will be optimized
for e.g : to complete a WEB page PM estimates 30 days, however when the resource A has been acquired in the project, if that resources is very experienced then maybe estimate may be reduced to 20 days,
