The "Remaining Cost" calculation is not performed. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Used by:
      - MS Project 2016 Pro. Desktop

    The resource is material.
    Task - Fixed amount of resources. (if necessary, I can change this).
    I assigned a resource to the task.
    I created the "Basic Plan".
    I enter "Actual Cost".
       - "Remaining Cost" - does not change;
       - "Cost" - increases;

    1. What should I do so that “Remaining Cost”, “Cost Variance” and other “Cost” related values are calculated correctly?

    The initial state


     If I understand correctly, then the logic should be like in the picture.

  • prog1003,

    There is no maximum with material resources, so you can not set a "fixed" amount. And since there is no limit on a material resource, there will be no remaining cost.

    Hope that clarifies your understanding.
