How to analyze the time spent on a piece?

Average time spent on each piece: a revolutionary way to assist your project management

An essential part of organizing a project is to evaluate how long it will take to complete it, right?

Now, iClips can calculate the average execution time of all pieces made in the system. iClips automatically calculates this value.

Estimated time

If you work as Customer Service/Traffic and want to include this information in more detail, you can fit it in the step of pointing a person in charge:

Average Pieces Execution Time

According to what has been executed, iClips will automatically calculate it and display it for visualization in the Pieces Model, here "Modelos de peça":

The time shown takes into account all stages and their respective execution durations, in addition to considering possible refractions that may happen.

The value is only updated on the pieces model screen when someone completes a piece using this model in a project. If the model is not over, this value is considered null.

It is important to note that the estimated time does not link to the automatically calculated average time.

The user must enter the estimated time manually. The objective is that:

  • The average time helps you to understand the general execution situation of these pieces.
  • The estimated time allows working on this indicator to improve it and share delivery expectations with the rest of the team in an easier way.

How does this impact my project?

Ok, we have an average time calculated automatically in iClips and the estimated time calculated manually. How does this impact our projects?

iClips will always prioritize the estimated time manually set by the user when calculating a project's total duration. What does that mean?

If the piece model has an estimated time, it will be considered for the design calculation. If the piece's estimated time does not exist (none of the piece's stages has an estimated time), the average time is considered for the calculation.

Estimated Time vs. Investment Chart

With these new features, it's possible to view and compare the project's estimated time and the time already invested. That is another way to monitor the progress and understand whether it is necessary to take any action to ensure delivery on time, for example.
