Is anyone aware of a method to address resource effectiveness on working at a project or task level? Specifically, not all resources are equal and a junior resource will likely take longer than a senior resource to complete bodies of work. (Furthermore, a specialist may complete a task quicker than average.)
We currently address this as a factor: 50% speed, 85% speed, 125% speed or whatever. A resource's speed with work estimates drive our scheduling.
A caveat I’m come across is that I want each resource to display actual utilization despite working slower or faster than average because other projects/managers need to know the resource is accurately utilized despite progressing at a non-average speed. I’ve been playing with Calendars but don’t have the flexibly and shared reporting accuracy required.
Another idea is that work estimates could be ‘managed’ manually for the specific assigned resource, but that doesn’t allow for efficient reassignment of resources as project plans will need to be adjusted constantly.
