Number of FTEs (including external) that perform the process "prepare for production/service delivery" as a percentage of total function FTEs

This measure calculates number of full time equivalents (FTEs) (including external) that perform the process "prepare for production/service delivery" as a percentage of total FTEs that perform the function "develop and manage products and services". The Process "prepare for production/service delivery" includes [Devising business plans and procedures for manufacturing/operations/production and delivery of services offered by the organization. Further in general terms the total amount of output that the manufacturing department is responsible to produce for each period.]. The Function "develop and manage products and services" includes [Governing and managing the product/service development program, generating and defining new product/service ideas, and developing products and services.].

To calculate the number of full-time equivalents employed during the year for each respective process or activity, you must prorate the number of employees and the hours spent performing each process/activity. Assume that a full-time worker represents 40 hours per week. Provide the average number of full-time equivalents employed during the year for each respective process. Include full-time employees, part-time employees, and temporary workers hired during peak demand periods. Allocate only the portion of the employee's time that relates to or supports the activities identified for an applicable process. Prorate management and secretarial time by estimating the level of effort in support of each activity, by process.

For example, a part-time secretary in the finance department for XYZ, Inc. charges all of his time to finance department activities. He works 20 hours per week. The secretary splits his time evenly supporting employees working in the general accounting process and the financial reporting process. Thus, his time should be allocated by process. So, if he works throughout the year and supports these two processes, his time would be split evenly as:

20hrs/40hrs = .5FTE * 50% for general accounting = .25FTE for general accounting

20hrs/40hrs = .5FTE * 50% for financial reporting = .25FTE for financial reporting
