Perhaps I’m just not sufficiently up on the finer points of project management, but I’m confused.
I’m putting together a Gantt chart on the release of a new product, but I’m confused about how to set up resource allocation properly.
In the Task Properties window, the resources tab allows me to allocate the resour4ces the task will use - I get that. But what does the default unit mean? Does it mean that the designated percentage of the resource’s time is allocated to the task, or that the resource is providing the designated percentage of the time required by the task.
To give an example, we’re having custom machinery made. Our internal resources will be putting in about 10% of the time on this task, and the machinery fabricator about 90%. So do I put in those figures against the resources?
