Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Note that your objective during Project execution would be to monitor and control how your project is moving. The trend is visible with S-Curves. You will also agree with me that the what you can’t measure you also can not control. S-curve makes you able to measure what you planned against what you have earned and excess what it is costing you(1. Planned, 2.Earned 3. Actual).You can also forecast.
Measurement of realistic progress and control using S-curves is limited 1) Cost values 2)labour hours 3)Activity weighted values. Activity count is misleading from experience.
I hope this would help.

Assign the resources, and use the activity usage profile. You can generate the required S curves.
