Idle Time measures the average availability for all people within a given time period. A workforce with high idle time is an indicator that staff has not been fully allocated to project roles or, worse yet, there’s no work for them.
Idle Time is the exact inverse of True Utilization Rate.
Bridgit Bench provides insights based on your project data to measure workforce inefficiencies. The goal of Idle Time insights is to help you understand your workforce better at-a-glance, gain awareness of any trends that are emerging, and point you in the right direction for deeper exploration.
Idle Time by Title
Idle Time By Title measures the average availability for all people within a given job title, across a given period of time.
This provides a high-level overview of all your projects. From this view, you can quickly see which projects have unfilled roles.
Clicking on any project opens that particular project and put it into context.
Clicking over any of the bars provides a tooltip pop-up summarizing Filled Roles and Unfilled Roles.
Note that the number of unfilled roles under the Project Breakdown panel may not match the number under the Unfilled Roles panel. The Project Breakdown panel counts unfilled roles with end dates before the current date. The Unfilled Roles panel do not show unfilled roles with end dates before the current date. This is expected behavior.
All columns are sortable by clicking on the column headings. You can change the timeframe displayed from the dropdown in the upper right-hand corner.
Clicking on any project name's colored tag will open that particular project and put it into context.
Filters in the Dashboard
Project Filters can be applied to dashboards to help find information faster! Filters allow users to refine results and view subsets of data that are most relevant to them (eg. filter by workgroup, division, district, or region).
Filters are applied to both dashboards at the same time. All applied filters appear above the dashboards and can be removed by clicking the X.
You can easily clear out all set filters by clicking on the Reset button.
