Managing Resources and Assignments

 

* Enter and edit resource information.

o This objective may include but is not limited to: max units, resource types, cost rate table, cost per use, availability, resource group, generic

* Apply task types and scheduling calculations.

o This objective may include but is not limited to: effort-driven tasks, formula (work = duration x units), choosing a task type

* Assign resources.

o This objective may include but is not limited to: assigning multiple resources, assigning resources to tasks, using units that represent part-time work
