A resource is something or someone assigned to work. Resources can include employees, contractors, managers, consulting groups, supplies, or any other category your organization requires. A user is considered a resource in PPM. You can capture user information specific to the user's roles and skills as a resource, such as "database administrator" or "programmer."
Providing resource information for each user is optional. For information about how to configure resource information, see the Resource Management User Guide.
Note: The hourly rate (chargeback or billed labor cost) associated with the resource or skill is defined on the Cost Rate page.
Workload capacity, represented as the percentage of the working day that a resource is available for planned work items, is defined through the resources's association with different resource pools.
