An old but still often true statement about software timelines: Adding manpower to a project that is already late makes it later. Of course reality is more complex than that, but it’s worth taking a moment to think about that sentence.
The nature of software projects is such that tasks can not always be neatly divided and it takes significant time and effort to be onboarded onto a project. Good software design practices and documentation can only go so far.
The solution? Where possible cut down the scope to build a valuable release faster and start with capable resources to begin with. If it’s not looking like you’ll be hitting the target, then adjust early on in the project.
