Calculate capacity at the headcount level (pulled from HRMS) by role or employee, with expected attrition deducted to come up with a net capacity headcount number. Attach some form of productivity standard to convert headcount into a related business driver, such as determining how many IT systems your organization can supply. Integrate data from supporting systems into your model to get automatic daily updates. For HR practitioners, having this real-time view of key workforce headcount KPIs can be a big advantage and the starting point for more advanced workforce planning.
