Man-Hour Capacity Planning Worksheet


Format: Log

A team may work on multiple and overlapping projects. The estimated time and the manner to accomplish the projects may be planned and monitored as cumulative man-hours. This worksheet template is used to determine man-hour capacity for the months ahead, and record accomplishment of past months. Use in conjunction with the article Man-Hour Capacity Planning.

The worksheet tool may be utilized to:

  • Determine capacity available to compete for work or assignments
  • Track completed man-hours or man-days against estimates to develop “expert judgment” capabilities in estimating man-hours requirements for new projects. This is a team effort to rationalize project determinants and refine estimating projects intuitively with actual figures from completed projects against estimates at the start of the same projects.
  • Indicate capacity utilization and performance of the team
