Types of S-curves —Man Hours versus Time S-curves

Man Hours versus Time S-curves are appropriate for Projects that are labour intensive. It shows cumulative Man Hours expended over time for the duration of the Project. As Man Hours are a product of Man Power and working hours, these may be adjusted together or individually in an attempt to keep the Project on track. Projects may require additional Man Hours to finish on time due to low productivity, weather or other delays and disruptions, rework, variations, change of scope, etc.
