PPM Support Tip: Enhanced Calculation of Forecast Labor Cost in PPM version 9.31.0001

The forecast labor cost of a staffing profile equals the total sum of forecast labor costs of all positions

in this staffing profile. PPM calculates the forecast labor cost of a position as follows:

 

Forecast labor cost of a position = Sum of (Total assignments * Cost rate of the resource/position+

Unmet demand * Cost rate of the position)

 

If there is over-allocation on assignments, the unmet demand value becomes negative. In previous

versions, PPM ignores the negative value (does not include the negative value) in the calculation of

forecast labor cost.

 

In version 9.31.0001, you can decide whether negative unmet demand value should be ignored by using

the following parameter in the server.conf file:

 

Parameter Name Usage, Description Value

IGNORE_NEGATIVE_UNMET_DEMAND

 

If you set this parameter to true, PPM ignores negative unmet demand value in

the calculation of forecast labor cost. If you set this parameter to false, PPM does not ignore negative unmet demand value (regards the negative unmet demand value as it is) in the calculation of forecast labor cost.

 

 

PPM Center 9.31.0001 is released and available on the SSO Portal at:
