Issue/Introduction

How is the Project Baseline Usage calculated?

 

Environment

Release: 15.9.3+ 

 

Resolution

Project Baseline Usage displays the system-generated usage at the time you baseline using the following formula:

Baseline Usage = Total Labor Actuals +  Total Labor ETC 

Notes:

  • Baseline Usage is the term used both by PPM and Open Workbench 
  • The equivalent of Baseline Usage in Microsoft Project (MSP) is Baseline Work 
  • The equivalent of Remaining Work in MSP is ETC 
  • To update this value for the Current Baseline rolled up to the Project level, run the 'Update Investment Allocations and Usage' Job with parameters 
  • When there are Subprojects, the Baseline details roll up to the Parent Project
