Hi all:


How  I can simulate the workload for each person who participates in the task (more than one person per task) and how I can display the activities associated with the roles in function to the asigandas priorities.   Thanks for your help

If there is only one organizational element connected to the task, you can set the attribute 'number of employees' in order to indicate that more than one person is available in that element. But in this case you will only get the utilization for the whole organizational unit in the human resource statistics.

If you need results per person you can connect multiple person objects to a function with 'contributes to' connections.

I'm not sure what you mean with your second question. Maybe you can provide some more detail about the problem you are trying to solve?

The page refered to in the above link has a number of papers on simulation that maybe of interest.

I am interested in the overall objective of the simulation, what is the business issue being addressed? This does impact the choice of model to be simulated, level of detail, scope etc.

Ralf has provided some technical guidance as how to specify multiple resources for a function, the statistics are recorded for both org units. The single function is displayed on the screen, if you need more detail to solve the problem then it may mean breaking down the function into smaller pieces to represent the detailed activities in a more granular way.

by the way...where are you based and what buainess are you in?

Well, thanks for your help, I want to simulate the following scenario: I have an activity what  use  two human  resources, but there are four human  resources available , one of which always performs the activity, the other three are chosen according to their priority, how could simulate this scenario?


I'm using Oracle BPA 11gr1


Thanks for your help

The described scenario could be modeled by attaching both a human resource, e.g. a person, and a group directly to the function with 'contributes to' connections. Then an organizational chart is assigned to the group object. In the organizational chart the other three persons are connected to the group object with 'has member' connections and each of these persons is given a specific priority.

When the simulation runs it will allocate the person which is connected directly to the function as well as one of the persons connected to the group object according to their priorities.

why are you simulating this process, is it that you are evaluating a potential reduction in manpower? Is it the utilisation of manpoer or the completion time of the activity that you are tracking.

I believe one approach is to split the activity into two parallel activities. The first being undertaken by the specific human resource, the second being undertaken by one of the other three specified in the order of priority.

Unless you include the activities also undertaken by the human resources you won't get a true picture of the workload upon them.


Hugo....where do you work....country and business?
