i. Monitor printing and paper usage:
Based on the following information, you will be estimating the resource usage for a 4 week period. On average your work team uses 15 reams of paper per week. Each ream has 500 sheets. You are estimating usage per sheet.
Week 1: Usage each day was the average amount.
Week 2: Monday and Thursday were the busiest days for the legal team and usage increased by 10%. Friday was a quiet day for the legal team and paper usage decreased by 20%. All other days were the average amount.
Week 3: Wednesday was a holiday and the office was closed. Every other day was an average amount except for Thursday which was a busy day for the legal team and usage increased by 10%.
Week 4: Usage was average for each day except for Monday which was a busy day for the legal team and usage increased by 15%.
Calculate actual usage.
