Resource breakdown structure vs Resource Histogram

Resource breakdown structure  vs Resource Histogram

The resource breakdown structure is a hierarchical representation of resources by category and type. Examples of resource categories include labor, material, equipment, and supplies. Resource types may include the skill level, grade level, or other information as appropriate to the project. The resource breakdown structure is useful for
organizing and reporting project schedule data with resource utilization information.

Resource Histogram used by the project management team as a means of providing a visual representation or resources allocation to all interested parties. This chart illustrates the number of hours a person, department, or entire project team that will be needed each week or month over the course of the project. The chart can include a horizontal line that represents the maximum number of
hours available from a particular resource. Bars that extend beyond the maximum available
hours identify the need for a resource optimization strategy
