Resource Allocation

690399 Newbie

Trying to understand the relationship between the two
project status - What-If & Planned - and the resource
allocation rules in Primavera.

If a
project is 'Active' then the assigned resources are
allocated. If a project is 'Inactive', the resources are
not assigned under the resource utilization module. <br
However, I am not sure what does
Primavera do with the resources for What-If and Planned
status of projects.

The helpdoc
explains the relationship between various status and the
time card reporting capabilities, but clear on the
resource allocation rules.

for your help in advance.

    Well, I found the workaround to this issue on
    Primavera knowledge-base (POINT)!
    />This is reported as a known enhancement request -

    Primavera suggests
    that all completed & non-active projects should
    have the status 'What-If' only. This is the workaround
    to exclude resource allocation from non-active

    If we truly want to
    see the affect of a planned project's load on
    resource(s), we need to choose 'Planned' status for
    that project.
