Dear All 

I need  some explanation on manhours calculation for resource loading for p6 and MSp

As for my understanding, in p6 the manohurs is called - Budgeted Labor Unit

And for MSp it is called work hour

Quest 1 - Is my understading correct for the above?


Before we come out with the manhours for each activity in the schedule. we must have the productivity for each activity.

Production rate = Qty / unit time

Productivity = manhours / production rate

Estimated manhours = productivity * material qty

Quest 2- Is the above formula correct?
