Resource Connectors

Key Concepts

Resource connectors specify a flow relationship between two resources. A resource can have one or more connections to downstream resources to specify where successor operations can be schedules. If a resource connector is specified for a resource, then successor operations will only be scheduled to one of the connected resources.

Setting Up Resource Connections

  1. Go to the Resource Connectors tab (Settings | Scenario Data | Resource Connectors).
  2. Select a resource from the From Resource drop-down menu.
  3. Select a successor resource from the To Resource drop down menu.
  4. The Fixed Transit Hrs field allows users to set up the amount of time it takes for jobs to transfer from the original resource to the successor resource.
  5. Click Save to apply the changes.
