How detailed should the planning be?
Should the capacities be planned to the day or is a monthly value sufficient?
In both cases, the utilisation of the employees can be seen. Daily and monthly values each have their own advantages in terms of presentation. You are free to choose which method suits your processes better. Of course, this is not an “either-or” question. Both types of scheduling can also be combined without any problems.
At which project level should capacities be created? Main project, sub-project or work package?
You have the choice whether to link capacities to projects. If you do, you have the advantage that projectfacts offers more evaluation options in the capacities. For example, the system can compare planned times with the actual project times booked. In this way, you can track whether the planning is being adhered to.
It is up to you which project level you link the capacities to. All ways have their advantages. Work packages enable more targeted planning, but you need more capacities overall. Main projects reduce the required number of capacities, but only allow for less specific planning. Here, too, a combination of all methods is of course possible.
