An example of forecasted project end date in tasks
Assume that project dates are since July, 1st 2011 till
August, 31st 2011.
The number of business days in the period (according to
the ProjectsProfiler calendar set up): T0 = 44 days
Report date: August, 1st
Job volume planned
in July (i.e. by the report date): 50 tasks.
Job volume completed in
July (i.e. by the report
date): 55 tasks.
Let's calculate the forecasted period of time required to
complete all planned project jobs:
T = 44 * 50 / 55 = 40 days
In this way,
the forecasted project end date is earlier than planned
by (40 – 44) = - 4 business days and is on
August, 25th 2011.
