# Scenario 3: Unmet Demand Calculation when Assigned Resources are Partially Allocated

In the following example, Project C requires senior java engineers for four months from October 2011 through January 2012 from US Pool. Staffing requirements are three FTEs for October 2011 through November 2011, tapering off to one FTE for December 2011, and 1/2 FTE for January 2012.

Barbara Getty is a senior java engineer who has 75% of her time allocated from October 2011 through January 2012 to Project C. She is not planning to take any vacation during that time.

Table B-5. Example Unmet Demand Calculations for Project C
Oct. 2011 Nov. 2011 Dec. 2011 Jan. 2012
FTEs Hours FTEs Hours FTEs Hours FTEs Hours
Forecast: Senior Java Engineer 3.00 8*21*3=504.0 3.00 8*21*3=504.0 1.00 8*22*1=176.0 0.50 8*21*.5=84.0
Barbara Getty 0.75 8*21*.75=126.0 0.75 8*21*.75=126.0 0.75 8*22*.75=132.0 0.75 8*21*.75=126.0
Unmet Demand 2.25 504.0-126.0=378.0 1.00-0.52=0.48 504.0-126.0=378.0 0.25 176.0-132.0=44.0 (0.25) (42.0)

Assignment hours = working hours per day in resource calendar * (working days per month in resource calendar - personal leaving days) * percentage of allocation
