Running the Cost Analysis action for a contract item opens a report that shows planned and actual costs of this contract item. The period of costs is calculated dynamically based on cost projections and bookings that exist for this contract item.
By comparing planned and actual expenses, you can find deviations and determine their cause.
The report shows basic information for the contract item, the list of appointments if there are any in the system, and comparison of planned and actual costs for each month.
The hyperlink in the period column of the contract item analysis report can be used to open the filtered report for a certain month. The filtered report might show differences in amount and cost category.
