Resources and Shifts
Additional information
Go to the Resources tab of the Resource Manager block
Select Mode: Manage groups
Optional: in the Set resource filters frame, choose filters to limit which resources are dis- played
In the Create/modify groups frame, choose Group: New resource group
Name the new group
In the dialog that appears, choose whether or not the system should create a default resource requirement for the group. This option is explained in “Default resource requirements” on page 268.
In the Select resources to group frame, check the Select box for each resource you want to include in the group
Click the arrow button. The button, shown at right, is located between the Select resources for groups and the Create/modify groups frames. Clicking the button causes the selected resources to become members of the group.
Assigning properties to groups
As discussed on page 259, each member of a group can be assigned a Skill Level and/or a Resource Rank. These group properties are used to prioritize which resource to select first from the group, when a group requirement is executed.
Any number, including 0 (zero) and decimals, can be assigned to a group member as its Skill Level or Resource Rank.
Deleting groups or their members
Go to the Resources tab of the Resource Manager block
Select Mode: Manage groups
Optional: in the Set resource filters frame, choose filters to limit which resources are dis- played
In the Create/modify groups frame, choose the group you want to delete
To delete the entire group, click Delete Group
To remove only certain members, check the appropriate Select boxes and click Remove Selected Members
☞ Deleting a group and its members, or removing individual members from a group, does not delete the resources.
Using a group in a resource requirement
A filtering condition can be created that filters on a group property, either Skill Level or Resource Rank. That filtering condition can then be used as a component of a quantity expres- sion, but only in conjunction with a second filtering condition that filters on a specific resource group. For more information, see “Using group filtering conditions” on page 267.
