Ideal time vs Elapsed time

Fri Jun 07, 2019 5:09 am

Is Ideal time equal to Elapsed time? how do we estimate ideal time? while estimating ideal time, do we consider interruption time of the resources?
Thanks & Regards,

Elapsed Time means the passage of time from the beginning of an event to end. If I take three days from start to finish an activity then elapsed time is three days.

Ideal Time: The actual time given in doing activities is known as Ideal Time. It does not include meeting times, lunchtime, phone times.
