Reviewing Planned Costs

The planned costs for your project become reliable figures that you can use for a budget request or a project proposal when the following information is entered in your project plan:

  • All required work and material resources, even if they’re just generic resources

  • Cost rates and per-use costs for all work and material resources

  • Cost resources, assigned to tasks with their individual amounts

  • All tasks, complete with reliable duration estimates

  • Assignments for all tasks

  • Any fixed costs for tasks

After this information has been entered, you can review planned costs by various categories, some granular and some high-level: assignment costs, resource costs, task costs, and total project costs.
