You are not sure about how is the value for Remaining Planned Cost calculated.


 The field calculates the Remaining Planned Cost based on the Remaining Quantity you can find under Products tab of the respective project.


For example Project ABC has the product XYZ assigned under Products tab (ABC corresponds to the Project ID and XYZ to the Product ID).

If there is 50h of Planned Quantity, however Actual Quantity is 5h, this will result on 45h of Remaining Quantity.

If we open product XYZ and go to Valuation tab, for the respective company and set of books, we can find the Cost Rate. Let's assume the Cost Rate is 50 USD / h.

If we multiply the Planned Quantity with the Cost Rate, we have 50 * 50 = 2500 USD, this is the Planned Cost.

Now we do the same for Remaining Quantity: 45 * 50 = 2250 USD, which is the Remaining Planned Cost.
