Successful Project Management requires balancing the triple constraints of Schedule, Resources, and Costs. Primavera P6 Release 8’s dashboard provides many tools to facilitate effective Resource Management. There are three steps that one must consider when managing resources.

  1. The first step in effective Resource Management is to identify those resources that are over-allocated.
  2. The next step is to identify when those over-allocations occur.
  3. Then it is critical to identify the activities contributing to the over-allocation so that intelligent decisions can be made to correct the problem.

These steps can all be performed in the Over- allocated Resources portlet.
