Default Tri-Tip and Chicken quantity Help


I am looking for a little advice.. I was asked by a good friend to cater an event he is hosting with 40-50 adults. He wants tri-tip, and chicken (lemon herb bonless breasts), rice pilaf, and green beans. I have done this in the past, but never really paid good attention to quantities, only made sure that there was enough..way too much actually.
Questions :
What is the best way to figure potions of there a general rule of thumb? How about if 2 meats are offered? Do you calculate with uncooked weight? Whest the best portion size? etc..ect...
What about portion size for sides?

If anyone out there can offer some advice I would really appreciate it...
Thanks from a newbie!
