Creating a Capacity Scenario makes it possible to visually display a "What If " scenario.
A Capacity Scenario helps visually show the answers to questions such as "What will happen if there is reorganization?" or “What will happen if we hire additional resources?"
A Capacity Scenario can be created in the Resource Analyzer. By creating a Capacity Scenario, it is possible to see what happens if the Capacity Scenario is used against the current Resource Plan.
Capacity is equal to the maximum amount that something can contain, or in this case, the amount of work that can be done by a resource, department, or an organization.
A scenario describes one way that a system is imagined to be used in the context of activity in a defined time-frame (weeks, months, life of plan).
