Resource Allocation Management made quick and easy!
Optimisation of operational logistics planning improves profitability and quality of customer service.
Operations Planner enables staff to optimise resource allocation to every task, taking into account numerous constraints such as: working rules (work schedules, overtime, breaks, vacations,..), required competencies, skill and capacity levels, resource costs, and even temperamental combinations.
Human and material resource planning provides a global forecast and operational view of available/unavailable resources. These are key factors to success when properly considered and should be managed with extra care so as not to put quality of service at risk.
The planning process initially allows assessment of each task’s global duration, necessary level of resources, skills required and matching staff profiles. Effective planning requires consideration of project resource constraints (vacations, sick leaves, RTT, training,..). Upfront resource planning will take the optimisation of resource allocation into account as some resources are dedicated to different tasks, either on a full time basis or are dependent on work schedules. As a result, certain resources can be allocated to tasks for a set period whilst other resources can be shared concurrently amongst several tasks for a defined duration.
Both strategic and operational benefits
Operations Planner would in this scenario immediately suggest in a fully optimised scheme, the most suitable resources to deputise, taking crucial factors like cost implications into account. Fast reorganisation of resource allocation provides significant time and energy savings.
