To perform variance analysis you must have an accurate measure of the progress and current costs of each control account. A great deal of the functionality of the Cost Management Modules within PRISM G2 enables you to readily gather progress information for your project. To generate an accurate measure of progress requires information from diverse sources. For this reason there are approximately thirty five progress measurement method codes – each of which represents a different calculation method or source of progress information.
