Minimum Projection %

Use this option to define when cost projections should begin. Phases/cost types with percent complete values less than the minimum percent will have projected values calculated at the higher of estimated or actual costs.

Projection minimum percentage is set up in several places

  • PM Company Parameters / JC Company Parameters - This value is only used if a projection minimum percentage has not been set up on the project/job or phases.

  • PM Projects / JC Jobs - This value is only used if a projection minimum percentage has not been set up on the phases.

  • PM Project Phases / JC Job Phases - This field defaults based on the projection minimum percentage set up using the JC Phases form.

  • JC Phases - This is the default value of the projection minimum percentage when new phases are added to a project/job.

    This option only impacts JC Cost Projections

    There are cost projection settings on both the JC Company Parameters and PM Company Parameters forms. If you change an option on one form, the other form will not be impacted. For example if you make a change to the PM Company Parameters form, the JC Company Parameters form is not impacted. This allows you to maintain separate configurations for JC Cost Projections and PM Cost Projections.

    There are two versions of the cost projections feature.

  • Legacy - Prior to the version 6.8 release, all cost projections were processed using the JC Cost Projections form.

  • Enhanced - Starting in version 6.8, the application also includes an enhanced version of the cost projections process in the PM module.

    You can continue using the JC Cost Projections form, or you can transition to the new PM Cost Projections process.
