Abstract

If the effort(manpower) and schedule are estimated, there is very difficult to allocate the manpower according to the schedule time units efficiently. Generally, the Putnam's Rayleigh Model has been applied popularly. This distribution model is expressing topology that manpower is consumed concentrically in first-half point. But actual manpower of projects are consumed concentrically at middle or second half point. Therefore, this model cannot be applied in software project planning area. This paper suggests a model to distribute manpower efficiently. Fist of all, we investigate a typical type presenting in software development field and manpower profile type of actuality development projects. Next, we suggested a method to present the model by a drawing a contour about manpower profile for the efficient manpower distribution. The proposed model shows better performance than Rayleigh and Gomma model. By applying proposed model, we will properly distribute manpower to schedule in software development planning phase, and finally we may manage project successfully.
