Analysis of Work[edit]

Organizational work may be analyzed into several types.

Effort Tracking[edit]

Effort tracking allows to compare planned and real work load of people (human resources). Effort tracking may be done on a project or task level. When the project is contract work the effort tracking result is usually also used for billing. Effort tracking can be supported by time recording devices. Mostly these will only track when a person started working, interrupted the work for a break and finished working. The assignment which time slots belong to which project or task must be done manually usually by supporting effort tracking software. A simple approach for effort tracking is using time tracking sheets (on paper or using a spreadsheet application)
