Answers

1. In the Project System, only personnel resources represent capacities.

Answer: False

Machines, for example, can also represent capacities that are planned in projects.

2. Which of the following prerequisites need to be met in order to analyze the
capacity requirements of an activity?

Answer: B, D, E, F

You can use an execution factor to multiplicate the work, duration and so
on planned for an activity. This not a prerequisite for calculating capacity
requirements however.
The distribution key in the work center is only used if no distribution key is
maintained in the activity itself. If no distribution key is stored in the work center
either, the system automatically performs an even distribution of requirements
across the latest dates for the activity.
All other points on the list are however necessary prerequisites for calculating
capacity requirements.

3. In the capacity reports for the Structures Information System, all requirements
are displayed for the resources selected.

Answer: False

The capacity reports in the Structures Information System only show the
requirements for selected projects. No reference is made to requirements for
other projects or to orders made against the same capacities.
Capacity planning reports display all capacity requirements however.

4. If you want to distribute work to persons in a project organization for a certain
project, you need to assign this project organization for all WBS elements of
the project.

Answer: False

If you assign a project organization to the top level WBS element in your
project, this is automatically available for workforce planning to activities that
are assigned to lower-ranking WBS elements. The exception to this is WBS
elements that have their own separate project organization.
