Estimate Resource Requirements Using Generic Resources

Entering generic resources can help you estimate which resources and how many of a type of resource you need to meet your project finish date within a targeted budget. Enter your generic resources in the Resource Sheet and then assign them to tasks.

For more information about associating resources with specific tasks, see Chapter 7, "Assigning Resources to Tasks."

Check the calculated project finish date to see if you need additional resources to meet the targeted project finish date. Check the total project costs to see if you need to change your resource mix to meet your budget.

When you finish tweaking your project plan to meet your requirements, you'll know which resources you need.
