A workload is used to totalize, period by period, for a selected set of resources and criteria, certain numerical values for events, attached to these resources.

Within a workload, a comparison can be made of:

  • the load represented by the quantity of work to undertake. It may be:

  • the objective representing the availability or capacity of resources used for this work. It may be:

    • a number of scheduled events,

    • their duration,

    • their load,

    • their valuation,

    • or numerical values taken from their formulas,

    • and finally, the duration of the free periods relating to resources.

The ratio between load and capacity for a workload may be attached to specific colors depending on the values for a particular period.

This latter notion may be considered to resemble the notion of a threshold for control totals.
