Learning Objectives: 

If your project contains cost information for budgeting or for tracking project performance, this information isn’t doing you much good unless you can view and analyze it. Without a solid understanding of where your costs are going in a project, the project can quickly fail and become unprofitable.

During this event, students will learn to enter, view and manage cost on the following points
1. Know what costs are
2. Know the resource types – people, equipment, facilities, cost resources
3. Enter variable rates for people or material resources
4. Set a fixed cost for a task or project
5. Regulate the cash flow
6. Display the original planned budget
7. Optimize the project plan to meet the budget
8. Baseline the cost information
9. Control whether actual costs can be edited or automatically calculated
10. Cost performance
