* Estimated Effort Sample Calculations:
This metric is calculated by multiplying the number of implementation days by the number of full-time equivalent resources. Examples:
An implementation with a 3-month duration using 3 full-time and 4 half-time resources: (3 x 20 working days) x [(3 people x 100%) + (4 people x 50%)] = 300 project days
An implementation with a 9-month duration using 6 full-time and 8 half-time resources: (9 x 20 working days) x ([6 people x 100%] + [8 people x 50%]) = 1,800 person days
