Human Resource Utilization Analysis and Recommendations Using Software Analytics

Subhash Ajmani, Satya Sai Prakash K., and D. S. U. M. Prasad
Abstract—Software organizations induct employees belonging to diverse backgrounds with varied work experience. Resources work on different projects with varied complexity. We propose a formalism to identify the significant parameters that contribute to evaluate the resource utilization and contribution in the projects. Proposed formalism was tested with a sample project data consisting of 23 employees, 11 measured parameters across 10 product releases. Parameters such as individual effort, product level experience, defect percentile, complexity level, and manager rating have been captured for each release. Once data is pre-processed, principal component analysis (PCA) and K-means clustering were used to assess the relative association of employees based on experience to complexity. The PCA analysis helped in identifying two parameters i.e., ‘product level experience’ and ‘defect percentile’ that captures the major variation in the data. In addition, k-means provided 3, 5, and 9 clusters for further investigation. This analysis helped in identifying the impact of various parameters such as product level experience, project complexity etc. on resource utilization. Based on the present analysis recommendations could be made for future resource allocation and areas of improvement.

Index Terms—Human resource utilization analysis, K-means clustering, principal component analysis, software analytics.
