JPL Workforce Analysis

In 1995 at JPL, keeping track of all the labor hours by project was a very time consuming task each month for the Section Admins. Division required them to produce a report each month to check to make sure that their projected man-hours and actual man-hours were relatively close.

    • Nicholas was able to pull down from the lab’s mainframe all of the Divisions monthly labor times and charges. A program was developed that accomplished the task for the entire Division (6 Sections) in just under 90 minutes, as opposed to just one Section of the Division taking 19 hours to do manually, an efficiency of 12.6x’s more efficient.
