Resource Reports

The resource report displays information about a selected resource and how it is used in the deconflicted schedule.

The resource report is designed so that it provides information about the definition of one or more resources in such a manner that it may be programmatically parsed using an external application. The report consists of a header section and resource details section.

Resource Reports may be created by selecting Resource -> Report from the Menu Bar, then selecting a resource if one is not already selected.

Resource Reports

Report Header

The header contains information about the schedule in which the resource(s) described in the report appear.

The header information includes:

  • Schedule name
  • Schedule start date/time
  • Schedule end date/time
  • Duration of scheduling period
  • Algorithm used to de-conflict schedule
  • AutoValidate status (ON/OFF)
  • GraphicsUpdate status (ON/OFF)
  • Length of time it took to de-conflict schedule
  • Figure of Merit score
  • Time the report was generated
