  • To look at Task Assignments, see
    • Actuals
    • Pending actuals
    • ETC
    • Proposed ETC

    • Including labor and non-labor resources
  • With
    • ability to edit ETC and Proposed ETC in daily scrum meetings
    • ability to compare task actual hours to baseline hours to improve team's forecasting abilities


Currently, importing Actuals from MSP results in the following:

  • Actual Hours are used to decrement ETC
  • Actual Hours are then tossed, not stored in CA PPM
  • Therefore, comparison of actual vs. baseline is meaningless


Anything new on this subject?
