The whole point of this app is to make sure we make money on a given project. e.g. If a client can't afford to use Expert resources, (which is reflected in the Fee), then we have to change the resource mix.
Our challenge is to do this visually.... When you have people, rates, tasks and hours all mixed together, it will need a smart creative designer to present in a way that's intuitive!
We have attached a wireframe which matches our pen and paper Rate Card planning approach.
It would be awesome if there was a very visual way to illustrate, for example, how top heavy our resource mix is. Computer games are good doing this usually.
The actual numbers are (very) important, but if you toggle the "Show People" view, perhaps the resource map would show little lemmings at each stage of the project, with big lemmings for expert resources and little lemmings for junior staff.
Stuff that's missing from the visual:
- We need to be able to Share our proposed plan with someone else
- It would be good if you could make comments in the margin
1) Submit designs only for the iPad please. No other device matters, we only have iPads.
2) Design submissions should include the iPad frame in the graphic. It helps folks to see what we're trying to do.
