Capacity Model Factors
This Document can be found in the following categories:
Specify the minimum unutilized capacity the Autocalc will look
at. Only when unutilized capacity is greater than Min Unutil will
capacity be reduced.
If Min Unutil is zero (0), all unutilized capacity will be reduced. If Min
Unutil is .3 (30%), a resource 60% utilized will have capacity
reduced; a resource 75% utilized will have no capacity
Target change to total capacity (FTE or Cost). Entering a value
here causes an automatic calculation (Autocalc) of a model.
If the value is 0 (no change in total capacity), unutilized capacity
will be used to satisfy Demand Shortfall.
The result of this automatic calculation appears in the grid as
percent increases or decreases in capacity. Where allocation for a
node-skill is to be increased but no resources in the node with
that skill has availability an absolute (positive) value will be
present. This is a FTE capacity increase.
If there is more demand shortfall than unutilized
capacity and the change value is the positive difference between
them (3.5 in the screen shot below), 100% of portfolio demand will
If the change is -10.6, unutilized will drop to 20 and demand
shortfall will be unchanged.
If the change is -40.6, unutilized will drop to 0 and demand
shortfall will increase to 44.1. In this case resources
allocated to the projects at the bottom of the prioritized project
list will have their capacity reduced thereby increasing
