Resource Attributes
The following attributes appear on resource information pages:
The resource name.
Resources are automatically created for team roles and team members as they are added to the team. If the resource is a team member, it specifies their full name. If a user has not joined the team yet, their email address is displayed.
Windchill User
Windchill Group
Windchill Team Role
For a definition of each type, see Resources.
Max Units
The maximum percentage of time each day that a resource can be used for plan work.
Max units are only applicable to time and are based on the calendar preferences set for the plan and the resource. For example, if you are using a 24-hour calendar and a machine can only operate 6 hours a day, then its max unit value would be 25%. If you are operating with a standard 40 hour work week (8 hours per day for 5 days), then the max unit value would be 75%.
Max units serve as a guide for determining Resource Units when assigning a resource to an activity, but do not affect how resource units are calculated. For example, if a resource working with a standard calendar has 75 max units (or 6 hours of availability per day), then 75 is used as the default units value when assigning that resource to an activity. However, if you later edit the assignment to use 100 units of that resource, then the resource availability is recalculated to be 8 hours a day. The max unit value is unaffected.
Standard Rate
The cost of the resource over a given period of time. Accepted rate values include:
per minute
per hour
per day
per week
per month
Cost Per Use
Any additional cost per unit time that should be calculated in the overall cost of activities assigned to the resource.
The cost per use is adjusted according to the percentage of the resource time used (specified in the Resource Units field when creating an assignment). For example, if your resource is a piece of equipment, it might have a fee of $60 that is separate from its hourly rate. If you assign that machine as a resource and allocate 50% of its use to that activity, then $30 is added to the activity cost.
