Improve Resource Teams Capacity Planning with Heat Map Reports
Heat map reports are a versatile and efficient way to swiftly gain insights to data trends and patterns. But how can we use heat maps to advance and boost resource teams capacity planning? Well, the visualization of existing data values becomes enhanced with a heat map function. The report data becomes easier to distinguish. Heat map reports are innately self explanatory, simplifying the communication of key data. You will come across heat maps in many ways, not just in resource management. For example, Strava use heat maps to show global activity. Like Strava, all Hub Planner reports are in real time. What is the benefit? You can track and monitor resources, teams and projects with immediate live data. This allows you to accurately gauge capacity and utilization planning. In turn, decisions can be made more quickly and strategically bettering resource teams capacity planning.
How does Hub Planner help?
Hub Planner encompasses a number of heat map report templates that provide a visual breakdown of projects, resources, events and unassigned work. The breakdown in defaulted by each day based on the current month. Indeed, alter dates for a more in-depth focused or an expansive view of data. Each template helps to focus on important information relating to the progress of projects, budgets, resource capacity and utilization.
If you look at the key benefits we highlighted in Hub Planner’s Resource Heat Map Scheduler Functionality. We talk about how using colors to represent the varying levels of resource availability and capacity. A heat map will provide transparency as well as visually enhancing the scheduler. Thus, making it easier to identify and analyze team resource capacity planning.
The idea and advantage of the “heat map” view in your scheduler allows you to visualize and identify individual and team resource availability where you can optimize and forecast the scheduling and planning of resources. – Resource Scheduling
