Having the right capacity and resource planning software helps companies react flexibly to changing conditions. A state-of-the-art resource planning tool that allows you to check the workload of the available team members (= resources) and compare this to the available capacities. The ability to test various scenarios helps you optimize resource utilization. These features help you better meet your strategic business goals.
TPG CoReSuite is a leading-edge solution that combines three tools to enable load planning across the entire enterprise:
TPG TeamManager is an ideal resource planning tool for team management: It shows every team member’s complete workload plan, with its the absences, line activities, and project work. In matrix organizations, it is easy to see what capacities are available for projects. This enables team management to quickly commit and assign staff resources to requests made by the project management.
“The TPG solution enables our department heads to better plan the deployment of their employees. They are now able to respond to R&D project requests with accurate information on employee availability. Bottlenecks are easily identifiable, allowing them to avoid overscheduling these resources.”
Detlef Teuteberg, Business Process Consultant R&D, Global IT, Otto Bock SE & Co. KGaA
TPG PortfolioManager is a tool for managing project portfolios based on resource availability. The software tool allows you to aggregate the data from new and ongoing projects at the project level. This gives you a clear, consolidated overview of the resource utilization per team in a single chart. Graphical simulation of the current state of the projects makes it easy to optimize the use of resources.
TPG CoRePlanner is an easy-to-use project management tool for planning costs and resources. Project managers simply plan their activities on a timeline showing planned work and/or costs. This is as simple and clear as in Excel, but with a central data repository that eliminates the tedious job of gathering project data from various sources.
“We previously used Excel for workforce scheduling, but its functionality was too limited. Now we use the online solution TPG CoRePlanner. Storing the data centrally saves us a lot of time and effort when preparing evaluations and reports. The quality of these has also improved considerably.“
Thomas Kemmer, Project Leader Tools & Processes, SSI Schäfer GmbH
The three tools outlined above can also be used individually if necessary. However, only through the synergy created by using all three together can corporate management gainvaluable insights into how well the staff resources are being utilized. This includes displaying overloads and visualizing the potential for additional projects.
