Staff utilization planning

Staff utilization planning

We have replaced an existing Excel-based staff utilization planning tool by a web-based solution. Planning is done as usual in columns (calendar weeks or months) and lines (projects or staff) by hours of working time as in Excel. Any number of teams can be created and are planned independently. Holiday planning is done on a daily basis and can be carried out by the employees themselves (specific role with limited access). Holidays are taken into account automatically. The planning of the project-related hours is possible on a weekly or monthly basis with automatic conversion between both views. An overview of the planning grouped by project or employee may at any time be displayed and shows the load per employee and the remaining time for each project based on optionally specified total working hours. In addition, actual values are continuously recorded and displayed - after manual month-end closing - in color. Vacation days, leave entitlement and compensatory time are automatically updated and displayed in a concise report. An overview per month - both overall and broken down by projects or employees, a corresponding project / staff management function and a comfortable user management makes our staff utilization planning tool perfect.
