ResourceFirst 8.5 Knowledge Base
Managing Assignment Issues
This series of articles explores how to address assignment issues, such as demand shortfall (overallocation), non-optimal resource utilization, and finding candidates to fill skill needs.
In addition to entering and modifying assignments, ResourceFirst has a variety of features to facilitate addressing issues with assignments, such as:
- Converting some or all of a resource assignment to a general skill need (either because the resource is overbooked, is transferred to another project, or is no longer available)
- Finding candidates to fill skill assignments (i.e., filling skill needs with named resources)
- Optimizing resource allocation (by allocating “committed” assignments first, or viewing shortfall analysis assuming all skill needs are met within available capacity)
To learn more about these features, explore the other articles in this section.
