PROGRESS ANALYSIS: what does COST PROPORTIONAL measurement method use for?

Hi Experts,

When I tried to use the COST PROPORTIONAL measurement method, I found 1 thing:

+ actual POC = actual cost / overall value

+ BCWP = actual POC x overall value

It means that BCWP = ACWP (actual cost) --> Cost Variance (CV) = BCWP - ACWP = 0

Hence we cannot see the cost variance when we apply the COST PROPORTIONAL method.

Could you please help me to explain the use of COST PROPORTIONAL method?

Thanks and best regards,

Khoa Huynh

    this is the standard behavior of this measurement method. SAP clearly says Cost proportional measurement method is suitable for work packages where costs and services have a constant relationship.

    If this measurement method is not meeting your requirements, then choose another method.
