  1. Setup Organization Plan Work Purchase Inputs Contribute Funds Coordinate Work

    Create Recipes Setup Resource Types Once the work is planned, or even if it is not planned, you are ready to do some work to create some value. The NRP provides a structure to log not only your actual work, but what you used and what you created. This also happily creates a structure to coordinate your work P2P fashion across the network, whether working in the same room or far away in different time zones. Log and Coordinate Your Work fits into the NRP here... Distribute Income Exchange Resources Create Resources
  2. Reality Plan Recipe Input Event Output Event Resource Input Event

    Resource Process Planned Input Planned Output Planned Input Process Process Type Input Type Output Type Resource Type Input Type Resource Type Process Type NRP has 3 levels...and they go together like so The recipes and planning have created a context to easily log the actual work.

  4. The All Work page gives an overview of the work

    being done on all or a selected project for a selected time period. You can see how the processes are connected by resource flows to understand how the work fits together and coordinate with others. All Work Page
  5. The My Work page lets you see what you are

    working on, what you have committed to do, and what open tasks are available for you to choose to work on. It is a jumping off point focused on your work, where the All Work page gives an overview of everyone’s work. My Work Page
  6. Here are the places you can see what work needs

    to be done. • All Work page (top) • My Work page (middle) • Process Logging page (bottom) When you take a task, you are committing to do that work. You can re-estimate the task and change the start date of the task based on your schedule. That becomes part of the plan, and others can see what you plan to do and how it all fits together. What needs to be done? I’ll do it.
  7. Work Event Output Event Product, Component, Design… (Resource) Process Component…

    (Resource) Consumes Event Equipment, Space, Tool… (Resource) Uses Event Design, Prototype... (Resource) Cites Event Person (Agent) Most work gets done in the context of processes... You can see that “work” involves more than just work! Logging work involves logging all your inputs and outputs. Some networks don’t even log work, you get credit for your deliverables.
  8. The process logging page shows the types of inputs and

    outputs configured for this process. For each section, you can see what is planned and what has been done. You can change the plan and log work in all sections. You get to this page by selecting a process link on: • All Work page • My Work page • Order Schedule page • the Resource page for the resource created Process Logging
  9. This is a Process Logging page that shows the plan.

    No work has been done yet. If there is current inventory available to be used, consumed, or cited, it is shown. It is ready for people to log their actual inputs and outputs. Plan vs Actual
  10. Here is the same process on the same page after

    some work has been logged. All of this work was logged using the plan. You can log more than one work event for a commitment, for example some people log one for each day or each work session. Logging completion of an output resource makes it available for the next process. Logging consumption of a resource takes it out of inventory. Logging use or citation of a resource does not affect inventory, but makes sure that people get credit for those contributions. Plan vs Actual
  11. Here is the same process on the same page again.

    You can always log unplanned work in any section. Unplanned Work
  12. Most logging buttons on the Process Logging page bring up

    a small window for you to record your work - inputs and outputs. There is one special logging page for people who want to use a timer for their work record, and/or want to record more detail about their work. This can be useful for R&D processes where ongoing notes on what was done and the results can be useful. Work Now Page
  13. It is used to log time when you do not

    need or want to log inputs or outputs of your work. It provides a simple grid line item entry, so it can facilitate batch entry of work as well as entry of one piece of work. This is usually used for “overhead” and other non-producing activities. Non-Production Logging creates only actual work events, there is no process or plan. Non-production Logging The Non-Production Logging Page is reached from a button at the top of the My Work page.
  14. A To-Do does involve a plan and actual work, but

    not a process. It is intended for when you want someone else or yourself to do a small task not worth detailing in the process logging page. To-Do’s To-Do’s can be entered and viewed at the bottom of the All Work page (picture above), or right side of the My Work page (picture to the left).
  15. Coordinating the work... • using P2P coordination…. • The people

    working on a process coordinate with the people working on the next processes and the people working on the previous processes. • NRP sends notifications about events and problems. • Late work can be re-scheduled forward.

    the logging and coordination of work in NRP or this tutorial, we’d love to hear from you.
