1.I have added some Labor and non labor(Equipment/Material) resources in my Team and i can see their ETC.2.In Team tab i can only see the ETC for labor resource. For Non Labor resource it shows zero.3. When i click on task and go to assignment there i can see the ETC for non-labor resource.So Can anyone help me in understanding why i am unable to see the ETC for non labor resource in Task tab.In addition to this when i do baseline of my project for BAC it only shows 8 which I had assigned for a task with labor resource and it ignore all other non labor resource data for BAC.
As per BAC calculation it is
BAC: Baseline at Completion
BAC: (Sum of all the assignment level Actual Cost values for the project) + ETC (Cost) at the time the baseline is recorded. This will include future posted actual costs.
In my case No Actual has been posted yet but ETC (Cost) should calculate as I have all rate matrix for non labor resource in place.
The non-labor resource that you are referring here, might not be having any Availability, unlike the Labor resources. The ETC depends on the availability that is set on the resource level. Please check the Home --> Resources page and see if there is any availability mentioned for that Non-labor resource. If that is not mentioned that, even if you edit the ETC in the Task Assignment level for that Equipment/Expense resource, it will be set as 0 again. Please check and let us know here if that helps.
Thanks Abhishek for your quick response but I checked and my non-labor resource does have availability defined as 8 in Home --> Resources. I don't have ETC zero issue in task assignment or Team page but the issue is in Task list page.
The BAC calculation is ignoring these resource whereas BAC(Cost) calculation is correct which is ETC X Actual Cost(from rate matrix).
I also checked in my test machine and the ETC (for the non-labor resources) were not calculated in the Task List for me as well.
Some important points I found regarding this topic:
Please see this link where you will get more information: CA PPM Tuesday Tip: Resources with or without Availability
Hope that helps. Thanks.
Does this help?
What is the source of the ETC column on Task List - CA Knowledge
Thanks Liz.is this the reason for BAC calculation as well in baseline?
