The App for Resource-Based Scenario Planning in Project Portfolios

TPG CoReSuite allows portfolio managers and the PMO to optimize resource utilization with scenarios throughout the company. For this, all project managers’ and team leaders’ plans are added up and compared to the capacity. You can group resources according to any criteria, for example abilities / skills and aggregate their capacities.

In this way, you can identify and resolve resource conflicts before projects are started. To achieve this, you can easily move or deactivate projects and adjust capacities as part of what-if scenarios.

Collaboration with the Project Manager

Before projects can start, it is necessary to verify the availability of resources. To ensure you do not have to plan all the details at the beginning of the project, TPG CoReSuite supports you with the option for rough planning. You can do this at project or phase level and not necessarily in detail at task level. In addition, you can keep your planning simple by using generic resources first.

Later, you can expand the initial quarterly or monthly planning to the detailed weekly planning – including the allocation of the people assigned from the teams.

Collaboration with the Team Manager

TPG CoReSuite also provides absences and operations in addition to resource planning from the projects as a basis for realistic utilization planning. Therefore, it does not only map the capacity but also the actual availability for projects. This enables you to plan your teams and their resources soundly and with a long-term view.

For projects, you can choose between adding the project manager’s resource planning or the team leader’s commitments to the portfolio.
