    Project resource profile chart

    hi all,

    i am trying to create a simple resource plan profile/curve for my project which spans 19 months. the source data is a simple table with following columns:

    resource name
    start date
    end date
    total days
    allocation rate (%)

    i would like to create a line or bar chart where there would be months on the x-axis and total count of resources (or a stack) on y-axis taking into consideration allocation rate, e.g. for june '22, i will have 2 people full time and 2 people 3 days/week (60% allocation) = 3.2 people for that month.

    is there a way of doing this in excel?

    many thanks.

    mark

    Welcome to the forum.

    Probably!

    There are instructions at the top of the page explaining how to attach your sample workbook.

    A good sample workbook has just 10-20 rows of representative data that has been desensitised. It also has expected results mocked up, relevant cells highlighted and a few explanatory notes.

    YOu haven't shown us what the chart would look like for the sample data. A handdrawn mock-up will suffice.

    Re: Project resource profile chart

    Found this template in my archive.....
    The data table on the left can grow downward and the timescale can grow to the right.
    The formulas can be used for timescale units: days, weeks, months, quarters or years.
    The chart is on the top right and remains visible when you freeze panes just under the bottom of the chart.
    see attachment.......
