I am part of an engineering org of about 100 people. There are enough people, roles and projects that keeping track of resource utilization is becoming a problem. Can someone suggest a framework for keeping real time track of headcount spent on projects? I think I need an enterprise project tracking software but struggling to find something that works well. Ideally would have these features:

  • Lookup org wide projects vs schedule and see how much headcount from each division (electrical, mechanical, software etc.) is allocated to a given projects on a weekly basis.
  • Lookup a particular individual and see what projects their capacity is spent on on a weekly basis.
  • Lookup a particular project and see major milestones in that project, allow shifting of milestones that is relative (ie milestone 1 slips 1 month, so all subsequent move over 1 month as well).
  • Allow a forecast of resource needs and a way to keep track of actual resource needs to compare which projects stayed on track and which didn't/needed more resource to complete.
  • Please edit the question to limit it to a specific problem with enough detail to identify an adequate answer.

  • Hi - welcome to PM.SE. In your question you're looking for both a tool (which is offtopic for this community) and framework (which is on topic for this community). Could you please rephrase it so that the community can help you further and avoiding closure?

  • On the topic of project scaling frameworks, you might want to look at process-scaling questions.
