Question:

What does full-time equivalent mean?

Answer:

Full-time equivalent (FTE) is a measurement of team size by considering contributions from part-time contributors to the team.  

Consider the case where three full-time team members are working on a project with two part-time members (who devote 50% of their time to the project), then the full-time equivalent will be four team members.
