A simple 'rule of thumb' is to take 20% off what you can get on the dummy as your average DPS for operations.

For HM EC, you will want a group with around 1600 dps on the dummy, which equates to around 1300-1400 in operations.

For TFB HM, you will want a bit more. 1800 dps on dummy will be needed for certain burst phases (Yellow phase in Operator IX, beating enrage on Dread guard, etc).

Can't say too much about NiM EC since I only beat the first boss right now. I parse over 2000 dps on the dummy, and our group can barely beat enrage on Toth and Zorn. Our group have 2 melee though, and we lose a lot of dps during the red circle/berserk phase. From what I have seen, NiM Kephess will require a lot of burst AoE, so you need to balance out the classes your bring as well. (e.g.. 4x annihilation marauders will be bad..)
