Need Resource Deficiency Formula corrected
OS23
✭✭
Hi there, Im wanting to track resource deficiency on my projects. I'm using Capacity planning templates for smartsheet and the deficiency formula is not giving me a correct formulation. Given that
 Total project Demand (HRS) = Sum of all hours per week from Level of Effort column
 Utilization Rate is Level of effort (HRS/Week) / Work Hours per Week *100 = in % (Averaged %)
 Effective capacity (HRS) = [Total Employees]# * [Work Hours per Week]# * [Utilization Rate (%)]#
 Potential Work Capacity=[Total Employees]# * [Work Hours per Week]#
 Resource deficiency formula i used is =ROUNDUP(IF([Total Project Demand (Hrs)]# > [Effective Capacity (Hrs)]#, ([Total Project Demand (Hrs)]#  [Effective Capacity (Hrs)]#) / ([Work Hours per Week]# * [Utilization Rate (%)]#), 0), 0)
If my work capacity (available) is 200 hrs and total projet demand is 100 hrs. Why is the Resource deficiency field showing I need 15 more staffers?
Really appreciate a quick turnaround on this matter. Thanks.
