Primavera is calculating Budgeted Cost by following equation , w.r.t Price / Unit.
For example:

a) Price / Unit: \$120 /d
b) Suppose Duration of the activity is 10 days.
c) Budgeted cost is shown as \$ 150 instead of \$ 1200, which means primavera is calculating Budget cost based on the following formula i.e.

(120 / 8) (No of working hours in a day) * 10 (duration)= \$150.

But it take this formula: 120 * 10days = \$1200, why this is happening??? Kindly advice.....

Hi! I am newbie with this type of program and career line.

Please enlighten me with resources. They gave me a file with indicated budget for each activity and I need to make an s-curve using p6.

Is this possible?

Ex.

Haresh,
This is common if you modify your resource rate or change something which is also affected by duration type setting. If both prices assigned to resource and activity detail, resource tab are the same then try this.
Tools-> Recalculate assigment Cost. That should fixed the problem.

Note: Things that needs to check
1) Edit-> User Preferences-> Time Units tab-> Unit Format (is it hour or day?)
2) Resource max unit/time = (8/day or 10/day)
3) Resource Price/ Unit = (\$?/h or \$?/d)
4) Activity Window-> Resource tab-> Budget Unit = ?
5) Activity Window-> Resource tab-> Price/unit = (\$?/h or \$?/d)

Haresh,

Anyway, just try to re-schedule and refresh data sometimes it displays wrong output if you did some editing of data without refreshing and or re-scheduling.

Hi Haresh,

Check if your price/unit under “Activity details” resources column is the same with your price/unit assigned under “Resources window” if not, re-schedule the program and click refresh data under “File menu”.

Joel
