Resource managers can now quickly see bottlenecks across the organization and proactively manage allocations of resources to projects.

Sensei Project Solutions announced today the official launch of the Sensei Resource Heatmaps™ App for Project Online, which provides support for Microsoft’s new ‘Resource Engagement Model.’

“Resource managers can now quickly see bottlenecks across the organization and proactively manage allocations of resources to projects,” said Kenneth Steiness, CEO of Sensei Project Solutions. “Project managers also benefit, as they can see conflicts for resources assigned to their projects.”

Three heatmaps help visualize the balance between resource capacity and demand in a much faster and more intuitive way.

Availability Heatmap - Shows the assignments of resources in relation to their capacity. This quickly shows how busy resources are with work from project schedules.

Engagement Heatmap - Shows the engagement of resources in relation to their capacity. This allows resource managers to quickly determine the commitment level of resources.

Coverage Heatmap - Shows the assignments of resources in relation to their engagements. This allows resource and project managers to ascertain mismatches in resourcing between the project schedules and engagements.

When you view the Heatmaps, the coloring immediately draws your attention to problems. As users of Project Online would expect, a single click on the schedule icon will open the Project Desktop client to the relevant schedule, where the problem can be fixed immediately.

The Sensei Resource Heatmaps™ App is available for individual users in the Microsoft Office Store, and organizations can purchase an Enterprise license directly from Sensei Project Solutions.
