Resource Breakdown Structure

Project Resource vs. Availability Widget

A Resource Breakdown Structure can be established utilizing integrated TrackerSuite.Net solutions for project and resource management.

The advantages that this integration provides includes:

  • Better organization of resources.
  • Improved alignment of resources with organizational initiatives.
  • At-a-glance intelligence on resource allocations and workloads across the organization.
  • Effortless drill-down on individual resources and their assignments.

A Resource Breakdown Structure (or RBS) is a hierarchal structure of human resources, organized by function. For example, the top level of the RBS could be the business unit that resource belongs to, the second-to-last level would be the manager that resource reports to, with the final level being the resource itself.
