Number of Planned Hours per Task

    Number of planned hours per task is a key performance indicator that shows the average time (baseline work) scheduled for each task in a project. This KPI helps to check how successful your project planning is.

    A task is usually viewed as the lowest level of the work breakdown structure. If the average esteemed work to complete the task is 40-200 hours, your project plan can be considered successful. Planned hours per task between 20-40 hours or between 200- 500 hours are considered average. Finally, if the project plan contains less than 20 hours or more than 500 hours of esteemed baseline work, it won’t bring successful results.

    If you need to count average planned hours per task or average baseline work, you need to do the following:

  • Create custom field "Baseline Work":
