The day assignments generated because of configuration units are not being taken into account in general in the load analysis of the resources. So, in this analysis story are included a set of tasks to fix this things.

Improve resource allocation screens to to view derived allocations

Now, the load because of derived allocations is being ignore, because you cannot detect it. It is transparent in the resource load windows.

So, this task consists of modifying the resource load windows and include the load of the derived day assignments (assigments done through the configuration unit of a machine).

The points to modify are the following ones:

  • In the show by resources mode include per worker his derived allocations. The row will be identified by a label in the [Task Name]::Derived([Machine name]::[name of the configuration unit]
    • [Task Name]. Name of the task in which has been done the derived resource allocation
    • [Machine name] Name of the machine allocation which has generated the derived allocation the row is representing.
    • [name of the configuration unit] Name of the configuration unit of the machine which has originated the derived allocation this row represents.
  • In the show by criteria mode if the worker is selected because it has generic allocation it will added the following:
    • A new second level line called Derived Allocations. Now there is just one special called Sepecific Allocations.
    • Include a third level with a row per derived allocation with the format [Task Name]::Derived([Machine name]::[name of the configuration unit]

Warning, important Currently the configuration units and the derived allocations are only used in specific allocations of machines. They are not used in the generic allocations. So, when a machine is allocated because of a generic allocation its configuration units are not used to create derived day assignments. We must include this in the help, it is acceptable to have this but must be documented.

Warning, important It must be fixed both the resource allocation in per project mode and global company mode.

Modify the bottom resource load chart to include derived day assignments

Include the derived day assignments in the bottom load chart in the gantt window to show how the load and overload is affecting to the resources of the current project.

Modify the earned value management to include the derived day assignments

Include the derived day assignments to calculate the earned value management. At this moment, they are not taken into account.
