    computer:tech ratio

    I know this comes up every now and again.

    we just installed a load more machines now our computer:tech ratio is 162:1
    becta recommend between 50:1 and 150:1
    We are now having trouble coping with this lot.

    I don't know... some people are never happy

    I work on my own and have:
    * 135 Thin clients
    * 60 XP Workstations
    * 60 Staff laptops
    * 30 Pupil laptops
    * 30 Network printers
    * 11 Macs
    * 8 Assorted 'other' servers
    * 6 Terminal servers
    * And a partridge in a pear tree

    On the client side I make that 296:1

    About 300:1. Just me and part of a part-time administrator at the moment but we are recruiting a technician. I can see a further technician being needed in the not too distant future.

    Re: computer:tech ratio

    The way people think about my place they think it is 18 technicians to one computer ...

    It is actually 154:1 (when you consider the euivalent worked hours since I have term time only as well as full time people)
