What is ACWP and how it is calculated?
ACWP represents the cost incurred for work performed until status date (or today date if status date not set). By default, how and when ACWP is calculated depends on the assigned resources’ Standard Rate, Overtime Rate, Per Use Cost, and Cost accrual settings in the Resource Information dialog box, as well as the actual work reported, fixed costs for tasks, and the status date or today’s date. Project Plan 365 can calculate ACWP even if you do not have resources assigned. In this case, the calculations are based on progress (percentage of completion or actual work) and fixed costs to date for the task.
