Can Adeaca PBA help manage resource utilization across the enterprise?

Absolutely. The Adeaca Project Business Automation solution works off a central capacity pool where capacity thresholds for roles as well as resources are maintained.

Absolutely. The Adeaca Project Business Automation solution works off a central capacity pool where capacity thresholds for roles as well as resources are maintained. This means that capacity availability is visible across projects, departments, divisions and the entire enterprise. If a resource has overlapping assignments across multiple projects, these are called out as resource conflicts and clearly highlighted for further attention.

If projects are scheduled with infinite capacity it is possible to load roles and resources beyond their thresholds. This capacity overload is reported not only against the resource but also against the project, highlighting that the schedule is at risk because it relies on over-utilized resources. Capacity overload can be alleviated by manually leveling the schedule and toggling resource assignments.

If projects are scheduled with finite capacity (leveling), the schedule automatically incorporates scheduled delays whenever insufficient capacity is detected.

Adeaca PBA supports both capacity management at the detailed resource level (individual workers) and the summarized role level (job functions). Also, roles and resources are not limited to workers and job functions, tools, machinery and equipment can be defined and managed as roles and resources as well.
