About cost to complete methods

Dynamics AX 4.0

When you create an estimate, you can define how cost to complete is calculated. The cost to complete method that you select is applied on the cost lines in the cost estimate.

The cost to complete methods are applied individually, and they can be changed for each cost line when the estimate has the status of .

  • : The check box is cleared for each cost line that you create, and the total estimate is copied from the previous cost estimate. The actual consumption for the estimate period is deducted from the cost to complete.

    This method does not require a forecast model.

  • : The check box is selected for each cost line that you create, and the sum of all forecast transactions is transferred as the cost to complete of the cost estimate.

    NoteNote

    The method can be applied only if a forecast model is attached to the estimate.


  • : This option is a combination of the and the methods. The check box is selected or cleared for individual cost lines, based on the previous cost estimate.

    This method requires a forecast model.

  • : The check box is cleared for each cost line that you create, and the total estimate is copied from the previous cost estimate. The actual consumption for the estimate period is deducted from the cost to complete.

    This method does not require a forecast model.

    NoteNote

    If you select the method, costs are reduced automatically, but you have to evaluate the forecast transactions individually if you apply the method.
