Resource Scatterplot

This resource density chart, created in OnePager Express, provides a quick look at how busy different people are over the duration of a project. Each task is plotted as a separate dot, so an increase in the density of dots means that a person has more work and is busier at that point in time.

In the example above, most people have their work pretty well balanced, but Jerome is overloaded in the month of March and Yoon-Seo has too much on her plate in August.

OnePager Express Resource Scatterplot

The resource density chart features:

  • Representation of each activity as a single dot based on its finish date.
  • Grouping tasks based on the person assigned, so all of a person's work is in a single swimlane.
  • Automatic detection of concurrent work; when a person is scheduled for two things at once, the assignments will appear on separate lines, to avoid overlap.
  • Assignment of a unique color to each resource.

This project resource scatterplot chart was built in OnePager Express, a project reporting tool that works with Excel.
