  1. Hi sandeep,

    could you pls explain me what the major difference and purpose between internal ,time and cost projects with any small example.

    why should we use time and cost projects ?
    can we map those usage in internal project directly?

    thanks in advance,

    • Hi Kiran,

      Hope the below works for you.

      Cost projects : Your organization constructs a swimming pool in a hospital community which you are builging for a multinational hospital. Your customer dont want you to charge them for this work. In such a case you may wish to create and maintain a cost project to track the cost involved in the construction of the swimming pool.

      Internal project : The Project manager of your company wants to track the cost of all the recruitement activities of the company for doing the above project. He may wish to user an Internal project. I would say Cost and Internal projects works more or less in same way. One important thing to note about a cost project is, it may be treated similiar to a short term investment project but the cost cannot be capitalized here.

      Finally the time projects are used to track the non productive hours primarily such as the Sick leaves, Holidays etc.

      Let me know if you need more clarification on these.

      Thanks
      Sandeep
