# Scenario 4: Unmet Demand Calculation when Unmet Demand is Forwarded to Another Pool

In the following example, Project D requires senior java engineers for three months from February through April from US Pool.

Joseph Bank is a senior java engineer who has 50% of his time allocated from February through April to Project D. The rest 50% unmet demand is forwarded to EMEA pool.

Figure B-7. Allocation Detail for Project D in FTEs View shows the allocation detail for Project D in FTEs view.

Figure B-7. Allocation Detail for Project D in FTEs View Figure B-8. Allocation Detail for Project D in Hours View shows the allocation detail for Project D in hours view.

Figure B-8. Allocation Detail for Project D in Hours View Table B-6. Example Unmet Demand Calculations for Project D lists the forecasts, assignments, and unmet demand calculations for Project D in FTEs and hours views.

Table B-6. Example Unmet Demand Calculations for Project D
Feb. Mar. Apr.
FTEs Hours FTEs Hours FTEs Hours
Forecast: Senior Java Engineer 160/6/21=1.27a 8*20*1=160.0 176/6/22=1.33 8*22*1=176.0 168.0/6/19=1.47 8*21*1=168.0
Joseph Bank 0.5 8*20*.5=80.0 0.5 8*22*.5=88.0 0.5 8*21*.5=84.0
Unmet Demand 80.0/6/21=0.63b 160.0-80.0=80.0 88.0/6/22=0.67 176.0-88.0=88.0 84.0/6/19=0.74 176.0-84.0=84.0

a.    Position Forecasted FTE = original forecasted hours/working hours in the forwarded pool calendar (for Project D, it is EMEA pool)/working days in the forwarded pool calendar (for Project D, it is EMEA pool).
b.    Position Unmet FTE = unmet hours/working hours in the forwarded pool calendar (for Project D, it is EMEA pool)/working days in the forwarded pool calendar (for Project D, it is EMEA pool).

When the position's unmet demand is forwarded to another pool, the position's FTE based forecasted demand is re-calculated using the new pool's calendar, and the unmet demand FTE is re-calculated using the new pool's calendar.
