Hourly Staffing Breakdown

Table 1 displays the projected breakdown for the distribution of the staffing man hours below represent the estimated working hours broken down for each major task per staffing role. Table 2 displays the finalized breakdown for the distribution of the staffing man hours broken down for each major task per staffing role. It is clearly shown that the lab tech and EIT has most hours required for the project due to the extensive amount of analysis and lab data collection on the site. The project manager has the least number of hours predicted to work on the project due the number of other projects and roles occurring at the same time. They are the greatest amount of cost and responsibility for the project due to their experience in the specific field. It was determined that the total hours to complete the project was about 685 hour, which was underestamated from CENE 476 by about 200 hours.
