Project Financial Forecasting Process RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    We are looking to replicate a current monthly project financial forecasting process in MSP Server 2010.  Currently, we use Excel and each project has all resources identified with their associated rates and designation as an internal or external resource (needed for reporting).  Lines for hardware/software purchases by project are also included - cap vs. expense as well.

    Each month the PMs enter the forecasted number of planned hours by month for each resource to create the project financial forecast.  The workbook then calculates the planned costs by month for each project where it is then combined with actuals to date and compared against approved amounts at the project and program level.

    What is the best way to replicate this process with out of the box functionality withing MSP Server 2010?

    Thank you -

  • Connie,

    Hardware and software purchases can be modeled using cost resources. The resource plan can be used for resource forecasting. I would start there based on experience.
