The resources of a project include equipment and reagents as well as personnel, facilities, IT-services and funding among other. The following questions should be answer before starting the project:
- Are all required resources available, including personnel with right skills?
- Are resources being shared with other projects? If yes, when are they available?
- Is there a preliminary time table for use of the different resources?
Is the process for ordering of goods within the organization understood/followed?
There are some open source project management software tools easy to use such as “Open Project” that can help in the process or planning resources for a particular project.
