  • Active SOC - The active Span of Control for the manager.
  • SOC Lower Bound - The minimum Span of Control for this manager.
  • SOC Upper Bound - The maximum Span of Control for this manager.
  • SOC Status - Shows if the manager is within their SOC Bounds. The status will display following:
    • Optimal - Within the SOC Bounds.
    • Wide - Exceeding the SOC Bounds.
