How to Staff Business-Critical Maintenance Projects
May/June 2000 (vol. 17 no. 3)
pp. 90-94
A maintenance project's team size depends on the rate at which maintenance requests arrive and the importance of servicing each request quickly. The author presents a five-step method for staffing maintenance projects based on this idea. The method uses results from a queuing model that are presented as a lookup table for ease of use. This result is then refined using experiential and qualitative inputs to yield a useful and practical staffing estimate. The author illustrates the method using data from an actual project.
