Where is cost variance?

Post by Simulate167 » Tue Dec 01, 2015 11:25 am

We have project with actuals for schedule and cost and we can see the Actuals plotted on the chart. Why can’t I see anything for the cost variance?

In RiskyProject you need you Cost Analysis view. You can find in to workflow bar on right hand side under Analysis.

After you have run your Monte Carlo simulations, if you have actuals, as you have indicated you can see the Actuals plot line on the chart. You need to use the slider to show cost variance on specific time periods. By default the slider handle is located on the bottom left of the chart and you might not have noticed it. Check out the picture below.
