Resource Management is the business process by which the utilization of scarce resources is planned and adapted to the disruptions in the operations/production environment. Scarce resources can be qualified personnel (ranging from the pilots of an airline to instructors of a ski school or to train controllers) or expensive equipment (e.g.: heavy-duty machinery, aircraft flight simulators, etc).

In many cases, existing IT systems only track resource utilization. Deciding which resources should be assigned to which tasks, reacting when tasks are changed or when resources become unavailable, taking into account the personal wishes of those who perform the work, all this is left to the ingenuity of the planners.

Kernel Software develops systems which uniquely improve Resource Management by supporting the planners in these most difficult aspects of their work. Improvements come from innovations in three key areas:

Automatic Planning

Employee Satisfaction

Labor Rules Modeling

In practice, Kernel Software expertise is captured in a variety of re-usable software components ranging from general-purpose building blocks to full-fledged domain-specific applications.
