This form provides access to where information on various resource types can be allocated to a specific item/object. Resources are linked to events and execution work orders, contracts and various other modules. Typically the resource data are items, services, supply of materials, staff, trades and/or assets that can be drawn on by a person or organisation in order to function effectively.

Resources are allocated to specific assets to define that the selected asset required a certain trade/service/item in order to be utilised or maintained. (For example: an employee who is responsible for maintenance service on vehicles, will have a resource allocated of type trade = mechanic.)
