Dear Community,

We have both PPM and CPM. CPM is used for commercial based projects where we capture the costs and bill the customer through certain deliverable milestones and issue/change management.

What is happening is that for a project they are linking both the CPM and PPM to a single PS project, basically for the purpose of PICM and some costing. Is this possible and would you happen to know any issues that we might face? PPM item-->PS project and then create CPM project and link to PS project manually.

Why would i have a PS project linking to a PPM item (project) and a CPM master project. You mentioned it's possible, but why do it? I have the two solutions (two projects) actually managing one PS project.

The first decision to make is where are you performing Cost and Revenue planning. All 3 tools do it. You need to pick one as the master planning tool and then work from there.
