Capacity in ABC
Rajendra Patil, Consultant, India, Member
When I perform ABC modeling I use the following method which is generally accepted by the clients:
# of days
- calendar days - weekly off - average paid leaves
# of hours
- 8 - lunch break - natural breaks
The values of these calculations give the # of minutes per day per person.
Now we have to convert the 'headcount' into the full time equivalent (FTE)'. For this all the persons who perform the day-to-day activities taken in the ABC model are taken as 1 FTE. For the supervisors it depends on the % of their time devoted to the daily activities.
In all of this, the employees on roll as well as those on contract are considered.
