As you plan the work on your projects, Adobe Workfront calculates the Planned Labor Cost for the roles and users assigned to this work based on their Cost Per Hour values.
The Planned Labor Cost of a project is a calculation between the cost associated with the job roles or the users assigned to complete the work on the project and the amount of hours planned (Planned Hours) that might take each role or user to complete that work.
The Planned Labor Cost of a project is calculated by adding all the Planned Labor Costs of all the tasks on the project.
There is no Planned Labor Cost associated with issues or with the project itself.
Workfront calculates the Planned Labor Cost of a project using the following formula:
Project Planned Labor Cost= SUM(Tasks Planned Labor Cost)
