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.

Overall Weightage by Cost

Hello Everyone,

Need Help.

I saw a schedule in which the Progress is weighed by Cost.

Each activity under each WBS has a cost. So everytime it is updated the WBS shows the % Planned and % Actual.

Overall it shows % Completed based on Cost.

So how can it be set up ?

Regards

Jithin

Thanks Zoltan,

 

So by this each WBS would have its own weightage and overall WBS would show the total progress Planned and Actual ?

 

Regards

Jithin
