managers have a long list of project activities that they would like to
complete but know they will not have the time or resources to complete
all of them by a given deadline. Over the course of a project, the
resources allocated to your project will inevitably change.
Process definition sets the stage for process improvement
and increases control. Naturally, with a documented process showing how
work is being done, you will also be in a position to better manage the
resources associated with your processes.
For example, during the course of a software product release cycle, product
features, marketing campaign promotions and web site requirements can be listed,
prioritized and assigned to corresponding release activities.
Having defined the process in xProcess, you will know the Roles
required to perform these tasks. xProcess provides visibility into
available resources so you can properly allocate resources to tasks and
accurately predict finish dates. Through xProcess Alerts, you
will immediately notified if there is a member of your project team that
is over allocated on a project. In addition, all estimates respond to
subsequent modifications. The result is optimized resource management
based on process-defined estimates.
