Hey MS Project experts,
How would you handle the following scenario in MS Project 2016:
- For a task, you planned to use 100 bags of cement at $70 per bag
- When it comes time to purchase the cement, the price has gone up to $75 per bag.
Meaning the actual cost is higher than the planned cost per unit. I haven't figured out how I can map this in MS Project. Do you have any idea?
Planned # of units: 100 Actual # of units consumed: 100
Planned cost per bag: $70 Actual cost per bag: $75
Actual cost for cement should be 100 x $75 = 7500 Planned cost for cement should be 100 x $70 = 7000
Thanks so much!
