Working with the schedule in the VRV

Capacity information

In the VRV, you can show a capacity curve to see free and exceeded capacities either of a group or a resource, a red box indicating an overload:

  • Collapsed resource:
vrv_histogram_collapsed resource
  • Expanded resource:
vrv_histogram_expanded resource

Set curve aggregation

For refining the capacity information, the VRV offers different curve aggregations, to be set by the Actions ribbon

vrv_curve_aggregation

The options in detail:

  • The daily capacity is calculated based on a resource’s daily working hours minus the daily total load, as in the example shown below: Capacity (=8) – Total Load (=12) = -4. The overload is being represented by the red bar in the capacity curve.
vrv_daily capacity

The weekly capacity is calculated based on a resource’s weekly work hours minus the daily total load, in the example below: 40 – 24 = 16 hours

vrv_weekly capacity

  • The monthly capacity is calculated based on a resource’s monthly working hours minus the total load, in the example 168 – 60 = 8.
