Resource Pools Summary Table

Alternative Costs - Single Pool & Multiple Pool requests

Alternative Costs are the demand of resources that are requested for each of the Alternatives by time period.  With only one pool, the Alternative Cost request represents the resource “cost” to be drawn against that single Resource supply.

With multiple pools defined, an Alternative Cost request can be entered requesting resource to be drawn against a specific Resource supply.  Pool level alternative cost data represents the actual request for each pool with total request automatically summed for the full Alternative cost.
