I'm using MS Project to manage training projects as a vendor. We are currently calculating earned value based on the hours budget for deliverables. However, we often have multiple people on the project at different billable rates, and also sell some deliverables in units instead of hours - training deliveries are a good example.
I'm looking for a simple way to more accurately calculate the earned value based on dollars instead of hours; any ideas?
Is there a column I could include with costs? How would that correspond to Work, and what % Complete field would I use? If I apply a billable rate to Resources am I creating a lot of work for myself just managing the software? What else haven't I thought of yet?
