Activity-resource assignments using critical resource diagramming

Resource management is a basic part of the overall management of any organization.Addressing the need for a simple tool for resource allocation planning, scheduling, tracking, and controlling, an extension of the critical path method (CPM) is proposed.This graphical tool is called the critical resource diagram (CRD).The proposed CRD may be used as a critical tool to develop strategies for assigning activities to resources, or vice versa based on criticality. The elements included in the CRD are: resource profiling, resource loading, resource leveling, and resource idleness. A Resource Schedule Chart is a companion chart to the CRD that provides a model that allows the project manager to assign resources to multiple projects.
