Creating Strategic Actual Deployment table

The context of the Strategic Actual Deployment table is the Actual Enterprise phase.  The Actual Enterprise Phase can have Start and End dates defined. Those dates can be reused for deploying Actual Resources. The Enterprise Phase element is related to the Strategic Structure view.


The content of the Strategic Actual Deployment table are Actual Resources used by Actual Responsible Resources (Actual Organizations, Actual Posts, and Actual Persons) to realize Capabilities in a particular time period of the enterprise. Rows of the Strategic Actual Deployment table are Actual Responsible Resources, and columns are Capabilities.

In earlier versions, the Exhibits relationship was created between the Type of Actual Resources and Capability. Now, the Exhibits relationship is created directly between the Actual Resource and Capability.


Deploy the Actual Resources that are necessary for the Actual Responsible Resource to accomplish the selected Capability. Actual Responsible Resources are related to Actual Project Milestones (Deployed and No Longer Used) using the Responsible For relationship. Actual Resources are set as the Actual Resource for both Actual Project Milestones.

There can be one or more Actual Resources related to the Actual Organizational Resource. The Deployed Milestone defines the time when the Actual Resource is started to use. The No Longer Used Milestone defines the time when the Actual Resource is no longer usedWe recommend using the timeframe from the Actual Enterprise Phase. 

Actual Resources are related to Capabilities using the Exhibits relationship.
