ROLES AND RESOURCES
Tasks may be loaded with Roles and/or Resources in Primavera. Roles typically establish the demand (forecasting) of a resource. Changing a task from a role to resources generally supplies a person for the existing demand.
The resources and roles of individual projects roll up to create enterprise level views of upcoming demand for people. Catalyst believes that through features like resource loading and with enough history, we can start being proactive about planning for schedules versus the typical reactive nature of current project management.
MULTIPLE PROJECTS / MULTIPLE USERS
While most scheduling tools give us the ability to create individual projects, Primavera is the standard when needing multi-project level reporting. The Enterprise Project Structure gives companies the ability to report across their entire portfolio of projects.
