The Project Cost Planning App includes the Cost Planner, the Modeler, and the Cost Analyzer.
The Cost Planner is a strategic management tool and is used to create and mange a Cost Plan for any project. The Cost Planner is used to build a Cost Plan for one Project Item at a time. Using the Cost Planner makes it possible to build a Cost Plan (Budget) and then compare the budgeted cost types and cost categories data with actual costs at a later time.
The Cost Planner can be accessed from the Project Center, the Project Control Page, the Online Project Planner, and from the contextual drop-down menu.
