Project Management with SAP R/3
Measuring technique for determining the percentage of completion in progress analysis.
When the start-finish rule is used in progress analysis, the percentage of completion (POC) increases from 0% to the initial POC at the start date. When the finish date is reached, the POC is 100%.
Values commonly used in the start-finish rule are:
0 - 100: The initial POC is 0 %.
20 - 80: The initial POC is 20%
50 - 50: The initial POC is 50 %
You can use the start-finish rule if you want to make an initial rough estimate of how the project is progressing. You should only use it if you want to carry out analyses for the whole project structure..
