Q1. Completed work 
Are Hours of completed work based on Estimated or Time Spent or Corrected time? 
> If Corrected time specified, Corrected time otherwise Estimated. See below for the formula. 
How are Hours of completed work calculated? 
> For a particular timestamp, Corrected time or Estimated(for those CLOSED work items)  +  Time Spent (for those OPEN work items)

Q2. Planned work. 
How are Hours of Planned work calculated? based on which time (Estimated, Time Spend, Corrected time)? 
> If Corrected time specified, Corrected time otherwise Estimated

Q3. Expected complete 
How is this calculated? 
>Assume you were at day 2 of your 14 days iteration, Total Planned work * ( 2/14)

Q4. Linear complete 
How is this calculated? 
>Assume the first date of your iteration is 9/7 and the last date is 9/20. Thus, the middle date is 9/14.  And you were at day 2 of your iteration, Total Planned work on 9/14 * ( 2/7) 

Q5. Total Capacity 
How is this calculated? 
And what would happen if new members are added in the team? 
> Pls refer to the Team_Capacity table on this link. https://jazz.net/wiki/bin/view/Main/DataWarehouseSnapshotSchemas20 

Q6 Capacity BurnUP 
How is this calculated?

Hi Clement, I had checked URL for Capacity and need to confirm about Question for Q5. since the capacity is calculated by date & Team, in theory The capacity goes up If we add a new member, right?

Do you think my understanding for the capacity is correct?

Thank you.

And you can also import the out-of-box burnup template into your BIRT development environment and the key dataset you should look into that contains the calculation logic is the "Burnup".
