Parameters to determine whether or not a project is performing within the expected tolerances can be set by a Project Insight administrator at the global level. These parameters may also be changed at the project level.

For example, you may decide to place tighter tolerances for budget reporting on a project with a small, fixed budget than on one with a large open-ended budget. These parameters determine when to show the reporting indicators as either yellow or red. Percentage thresholds and unit measurement thresholds (currency and hours) are "or" conditions, meaning that either threshold will trigger the indicator.

Definitions

Behind Schedule: The project/task is behind schedule with the yellow/red status when the completed work (earned hours) is less than the scheduled work (planned hours) by the amount OR percent specified.

Over Accomplished Hours: The project/task is over accomplished hours with the yellow/red status when the actual hours exceed the completed work (earned hours) by the amount OR percent specified.

Over Budget: The project/task is over budget with the yellow/red status when the actual cost exceeds the completed cost (earned value) by the amount OR percent specified.

Over Budget Billable: The project/task is over budget billable with the yellow/red status when the billable cost exceeds the completed cost billable (earned value billable) by the amount OR percent specified.
