Quickly compare budget versus actual versus forecasted values to measure an
initiative's progress with the flexibility of setting multiple baselines. Create
high-level time-phased budgets with user-defined categories for costs and labor.
Validate budgets against bottom-up estimates built by using labor, material, and
cost resources. Control project costs by comparing budgets to completed tasks
and forecasted totals. Use built-in earned-value metrics for predictive analysis
and integrated performance management.
(Inactive Tasks – Pro only)
Often you'll need to evaluate scenarios and consider options when planning new
projects or monitoring ongoing work. Using inactive tasks, new in Project
Professional 2010, you can easily experiment with your project plan and perform
what-if analysis. A simple toggle removes or inserts one or more tasks, along
with their effect on the project schedule. Project 2010 also offers more
built-in tools to help support what-if analysis and scenario comparison,
including multiple-level undo and change highlighting.
