8 Tips for Better Resource Scheduling

Resource scheduling is the process of identifying when project resources are needed and allocating them based on factors such as capacity planning or resource availability. It is important in project management for a variety of reasons, such as time, scope, cost, risk, quality and of course, resources. ProjectManager is award-winning project management software with powerful resource management features that help ensure your resources are working at capacity. When onboarding teams, you can add any PTO and even global holidays so that when you're building a schedule, you know who's available. Resource scheduling is a project management decision-making activity that needs many inputs.

It is linked to other important aspects of the project and organization, such as resource capacity planning, resource utilization, resource forecasting, resource availability, and project schedule. When drafting a resource schedule, it is important to weigh resource capacity, utilization, and availability when drafting the project schedule. Once the schedule baseline has been approved and the project execution phase begins, the resource schedule must align with the project schedule and not the other way around.
