Firm Size Criterion (Compatibility)
Last Updated: 09/13/2006
 
The optimum project size (O) for the firm (in $) is calculated as:

O = (Z) ($3000/person/mo.) (contract time)

where Z is the firm size entered on the consultant record.

The cost of the work to be performed by the firm (FEE) is computed as follows:

FEE = sum of (c(i) * p(i))

where c(i) is the project cost of category i
p(i) is the percentage of category i to be done by the firm

The ratio of the optimum project size to the fee:

     RATIO = O / FEE
