How to Determine Nonpersonnel Resource Needs

Nonpersonnel usage charts

To estimate the amount of each resource you need, examine the nature of the task and the capacity of the resource. Ensuring that nonpersonnel resources are available when needed requires that you specify the times that you plan to use them. You can display this information in separate usage charts for each resource.

This computer usage chart depicts the amount of computer time each task requires during each week of your project. For example, the chart indicates that Task 1.2.1 requires six hours of computer time in week 1, four hours in week 2, six hours in week 3, and eight hours in each of weeks 4 and 5. You’d prepare similar charts for required copier time and use of the test lab.
