Field Definitions: JC Cost Types Form
The following is a list of field descriptions for the JC Cost Types form. Many of the descriptions include links to other topics that provide additional information about or related to the topic.
Enter a short description (or abbreviation) of the cost type, up to 10 characters. This is the description that will be used every time you enter this cost type in any Cost Type field.
Although it is not required, it is suggested that the first character be unique for each cost type. When entering cost types in all modules, the program will match the first alpha character that you enter to the first character of the cost type, and then the second character, and so on, until a match is made identifying the correct cost type number. If each abbreviation has a unique first alphabetic character, it will accomplish this with just one keystroke.
Link Progress Cost Type
Enter a cost type code to link a cost type or press F4 to select a cost type from a list.
The cost type selected in this field should be the primary cost type. For example if labor should be the primary cost type and burden should be the secondary cost type, open the burden cost type and select the labor cost type in the Link Progress Cost Type field. When a plugged value is entered on the labor cost type (JC Cost Projections or PM Cost Projections ), the burden cost type will also be updated.
