Modify Cost Model

The following steps walk a user, with write access to the module and architecture, through modifying the cost model of a resource loading. This process also applies to a data set.

1. With the desired architecture loaded, ensure you are in the Gantt tab of the Content Pane.
2. Find the project (or task) with the resource loadings you wish to modify. Double click on the project name or event bar to open the Project Information window.
3. Select the Resource Loading tab. In the Resource Loadings field, scroll to the desired resource loading and double click the cost model thumbnail.
4. In the Cost Model Configuration window that pops up, you will see a graph. The x-axis is time whose range spans the resource loading allocation dates. The y-axis is a percent value from 0 to 100.
Hovering over a point will display information about the point.
5. Custom points can be added with a right mouse click in the desired position and selecting Add Point in the pop up.
Positions of points can be modified by clicking on a point with the left mouse button, dragging it to the desired position, and releasing the mouse button.
Once a point is created, clicking on the point with the right mouse button will display a menu to Delete Point, View Point Details, and Manually Edit Point.
Selecting View Point Details will display Selected Point Details panel.
Selecting Manually Edit Point will populate the Selected Point Details panel and allow the values to be edited.
6. In the Selected Point Details panel, dragged point details can be edited to have exact desired values.
The Type of Date drop-down list contains the following options:
7. As an alternative to manually editing points, the Apply Cost Model Type Template drop down can be used to automatically apply a common cost model.
Options include:
8. Click Apply when you are finished to close the cost model configuration window. The resource loading in the Resource Loadings field will now display the updated cost model thumbnail.
9. Click Apply in the project window to apply the cost model changes.
