Add a Cost ROM Column

This adds a source column named 'Cost ROM' which shows a ROM estimate for change events. The value that appears in this column on a budget line item is not yet associated with a CCO, an RFQ, or a Non-Commitment Cost

Steps from the Configure Columns window in the Company Admin tool… Settings
  1. Click Create Source Column.
  2. Under New Source Column, do the following:
    • Column Name. Enter the name: Cost ROM
    • Column Source. Select Change Events
  3. Mark the ROM (Rough Order of Magnitude) checkbox to apply these filters: 
    1. Under Prime PCO, remove all of the marks from these checkboxes. 
    2. Under RFQ or Commitment Cost, mark the Without Cost checkbox only.
       Note
      This ensures that the source column includes only items that do not have associated costs, which excludes amounts from:
      • Request for Quotes (RFQs)
      • 2-tier Commitment Potential Change Orders (Commitment PCOs)
      • 1-tier Commitment Change Orders (CCOs)
    3. Under Non-Commitment Cost, mark the Without Cost checkbox only.
       Note
      This ensures that the source column includes only amounts with commitment costs and excludes Non-Commitment Costs (NCCs). 
    4. Under Scope, mark these checkboxes only:
      • In Scope
      • TBD
    5. Under Change Event Status, mark these boxes only:
      • Open
      • Closed
      • Pending
         Note
        • When filtering the columns data by change event status, any statuses not considered 'Void' are selected by default. 
        • If your company created custom statuses, those will NOT be shown by name. However,  any custom status considered 'Open', 'Closed', and 'Pending' are also selected by default. 
        • To learn more about custom statuses, see Set the Default Change Management Configurations.

      • 3-tier Commitment Potential Change Orders (Commitment PCOs)
      • 1-tier Commitment Change Orders (CCOs)

Add a Non-Commitment Cost Column

This adds a source column named 'Non-Commitment Cost' column. The value that appears in this column on a budget line item represents a Non-Commitment Cost

 Important

If you plan to use the 'Non-Commitment Cost' column in the calculation for the 'Projected Cost' column (or for a 'Forecast' column), it is important to choose one (1) of the following options to ensure the calculation is NOT double-counted when related direct costs impact your budget:

  • Optional: Update the 'Cost RFQ' column to exclude 'Closed' change event statuses. Then instruct users who create relevant direct costs to also change the appropriate change event's status to 'Closed.' This will exclude the Non-Commitment Cost from the column's value. 
    OR
  • Optional: When users create relevant direct costs, instruct your users to delete the 'Non-Commitment Cost' from the appropriate change event. 
    OR
  • Optional: Do NOT create direct costs for the 'Non-Commitment Costs' being tracked in your budget.
Steps from the Configure Columns window in the Company Admin tool… Settings
  1. Click Create Source Column.
  2. Under New Source Column, do the following:
    • Column Name. Enter the name: NCC
    • Column Source. Select Change Events
  3. Select the RFQ (Request for Quote) checkbox to apply these filters: 
    1. Under Prime PCO, remove all of the marks from these checkboxes. 
    2. Under Scope, mark these checkboxes only:
      • In Scope
      • TBD
    3. Under Change Event Status, mark these boxes only:
      • Open
      • Closed
      • Pending
