Calculating Allowed Hours
The allowed hours will be calculated using the following values:
- The uploaded allowed hours for the department for that scheduled week
- The correct hours for the department for that scheduled week
- The under hours for the department for that scheduled week
- The total number of hours that are scheduled as 'passive' for the department for that scheduled week
According to the example from Fig.3.
- Allowed Hours = Uploaded Allowed Hours + Correct Hours + Under Hours + Passive Hours = 716,3
- Actual Hours = Active Hours + Passive Hours = 43,51
- Variance = Allowed Hours – Actual Hours = 672,8
The variance is coloured in green when it's a positive value (Allowed Hours greater than Actual Hours), in red when it's negative (Allowed Hours less than Actual Hours) and in grey when it's 0.
Open Shifts are not included in the sum of actual hours.
