Costs and Resources

NetPoint allows users to define the resources needed to execute the planned project. A resource can take the form of a skilled human resource (individuals, groups, or crews), equipment, capital/costs, or material. Cost-loading a schedule is done through the resource feature. Follow the steps below for instructions.

Any NetPoint plan may be resource-loaded to calculate resource usage, to level resource overages, and to visually illustrate how resources are used throughout a project. Resources are displayed as a set of histograms and curves at the bottom of the schedule.

There are four steps related to adding resources: defining the project resources, assigning resources to activities, adjusting resource display settings, and applying resource limits.
