Plan Today for the Possibilities of Tomorrow
Organizations conducting multiple projects each year usually plan their needed labor resources for tomorrow’s projects prior to project launch. Determining for future projects the number of project team members (PTMs) needed for each labor category is fairly simple. On the other hand, organizations often ponder whether they can use significantly less PTMs for each labor category than the total needed for the sum of their portfolio of projects. The major purpose of EPPORA’s resource planning is to enable an organization’s human resource department to know their organization’s staffing needs for specific labor categories at specific times to maximize their project portfolio’s ROI by minimizing labor costs.
Whether you select the project you launch annually, semi-annually or quarterly, you might wonder how to optimize the use of your labor resources across all the projects, and therefore share a common challenge with nearly all organizations. What is needed is a sound method, a process and a plan as to how to allocate your labor resources across your future project portfolio. EPPORA supports such a scientific method for project selection and a patented optimal allocation of an organization’s precious labor resources across its approved project portfolio on a daily basis. EPPORA’s “modeling” features provide an iterative process to determine how to maximize your organization’s future and on-going project investment, within budgetary and time constraints.
Hiring employees, consultants, contractors or temps to fulfill the project staffing needs is an expensive and time-consuming effort. What HR needs is a resource staffing roadmap to help optimize their resource planning process? EPPORA’s labor resource modeling helps organizations determine how they can achieve a balance between the labor resources needed for their projects they have selected to implement and the cost and time (schedule) required to implement their portfolio of projects.
