Available Staff - Hourly Rate - Utilization Rate
Project Architect A - $150 - 37.5%
Project Architect B - $100 - 25%
Project Manager 0 - $100 - 60%
Draftsmen - $30 - 95%
Client requests an increase in workstations. Firm expects the change to require 5 weeks at 40 hours per week. Total Amount for change is $20,000.
Which staff member should be assign to this project?
Answer and Explanation:
Project Architect B - ($100 x 200 hrs/week) = $20,000
NCARB doesn't provide a really good explanation to this answer given that there are two staff members with the same hourly rate (Project Architect B and Project Manager 0). So if I am deciding between two equal hourly rate staffs, does this question come down to then who has the lowest utilization rate? Is it because I want a staff member with the "free-est" time to do it?
