    Budget Performance Dashboard

      Article summary

      The Budget Performance dashboard shows real-time metrics from the site about the number of tasks in progress and their monetary values, a look-ahead of upcoming checkpoints, milestones, project status, cost incurred, budget revisions, and more. The dynamic charts pictorially show the cost and schedule performance, variances, and their indices for a quick grasp of the project status in terms of cost and schedule. The statistics also show the change orders and their impact on the budget and project schedule.

      • This dashboard is only available for General Contractors and subcontractors who manage standalone projects. 
      • The parameters, metrics, and statistics are calculated using the consolidated project budget; the task progress from all the subcontractors, and all the change orders.
