Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Should resource man hours that are added into a schedule contain an inefficiency factor or be solelyestimated direct hours to complete a task? There's one school of thought that the resultant resource histogram should show the additional resourcing required due to "possible" inefficiencies whereas a different school of thought says the histogram should be based on only activity direct hours and not to include an inefficiency factor.
