Tutorial: How to Saturate Resources for Schedule Optimization




1. The first step is to open Solutions in ALICE and click What If to schedule new simulations.

Step 1 image

2. Click Saturate all resources to default all available crews on the job to unlimited (∞). ALICE will explore a multitude of resource allocations, and recommend optimized crew mixes based on the updated constraints.

9. Congrats!
You can see a range of possibilities based on simulating crew and equipment constraints and saturations
You now have the skills to help optimize critical resources on your projects.
