Chapter 3. Working with Project Options > Setting Cost and Critical Path Option...

Setting Cost and Critical Path Options

The Options dialog also allows you to control how Project calculates the costs of your project and how the critical path is calculated. This section explains how to set these options.

Setting the Cost Calculation Options

This option lets you define how the Actual Cost for tasks within your project is calculated. Those new to Project should leave this option checked.

This option controls how the Actual Costs that are entered by the user are distributed when Project breaks down the number across time.

This option lets you set the Default Fixed Costs Accrual for new tasks. It controls how Project spreads fixed costs out across the duration of the tasks.

Click the Earned Value button to set which % Complete measure and which baseline is used by Project to perform the Earned Value calculations.

This option defines whether Project will use % Complete, % Work Complete, or Physical % Complete when calculating Earned Value.

Project allows 11 different baselines for a project. Use this option to define which baseline should be used for Earned Value calculations.
