How cost is grouped by default

PPM by default groups cost by the cost property "Expense Type" or "Type", depending on whether or not cost capitalization is enabled.

If cost capitalization is enabled

Cost is grouped by "Expense Type" into Capital cost and Operating cost.

  • Cost lines that have the property "Expense Type" set to "Capital" are listed under Capital.
  • Cost lines that have the property "Expense Type" set to "Operating" are listed under Operating.
If cost capitalization is disabled

Cost is grouped by "Type" into Labor cost and Non-Labor cost.

  • Cost lines that have the property "Type" set to "Labor" are listed under Labor.
  • Cost lines that have the property "Type" set to "Non-Labor" are listed under Non-Labor.

For details about cost properties, see Cost Properties. For details about cost capitalization, see Cost Capitalization.
