Planning of Resources
You can use activities in a network to plan the resources required for a project.
The SAP Project System (SAP PS) distinguishes between the following types of activities:
- Internally processed activity
Defines the work to be carried out by machines or people. You can evaluate the capacities of the various work centers involved, reschedule these capacities as necessary, and distribute work among employees.
- Externally processed activity
Defines activities that are required from external resources like vendors and subcontractors. External processing is carried out by the purchasing department.
- Service activity
A service activity is also used to procure services externally. It is defined by service specifications and value limits that can be rendered by the service provider. Service processing includes maintenance of service entry sheets. Service processing is carried out by the purchasing department.
