Initially developed for Brookhaven National Laboratory, the Forecasting & Resource Management Tool originated in the need to improve resource tracking within the organization. How could resources be shared efficiently across departments? To meet this challenge, an easily accessible, intuitive web application was needed to display data in a dynamic, interactive way.

Building the Forecasting & Resource Management Tool incorporated all of the requirements needed to track the resources in a department on a monthly basis. Analysts and Managers are able to view the actuals, requirements and labor pool to discover trends and anomalies in the data. By showing a clear picture of how resources are being used, the tool enables decision makers to better plan, manage and share resources.
