1  General Category / inShort / Workload definition and relation to expected time on: May 16, 2014, 11:25:20 PM

I need to better understand the term workload on a resource.  My assumption is that if I have an employee assigned to a task and that is the only task the employee is working on until the employee is complete then the workload = 100%.  I further assume that if I assign the employee a task, but the employee is only going to spend 20% of the employee's work time on that task and 80% on getting coffee or other non-diagram related tasks then the workload = 20%.  Is this correct?

When I adjust the workload I would expect that if I increase the workload of the resource the expected time should decrease because the resource has a higher level of effort focused on the task, but this is not how the software works.  It seems that if I increase the resource workload then the expected time of the task is magnified.

Can you help me understand this better?

Ok, I have verified what you said by deleting the link between negative condition and requirements, it did indeed become active.  I then relinked the condition on a port A, turned on the iterated input and it had no effect.

What you are saying does not make sense to me, why have nested diagrams if I have to complete all of the parent level before I can access them.  They should act like sub-routines that are executed once the parent object is activated.

Here is some screen shots in case we are not on the same page.

That had no effect, the object with the nested diagram turns red and the date slider bar becomes active (though I cannot change it).  The object is a "Common Process" with a nested diagram.  The nested diagram starts with a "Document" task.

I don't know if this is the right place for this or not, but I have completed dependent tasks to a common process which contains a subdiagram.  The sub diagram does not allow me to complete the first task within it.  So I am basically stuck because no other tasks can be started or completed in the diagram because of this.

Any suggestions?
