10. Project Statistics

Cerebro can display statistics on the project performance, as well as export it to a spreadsheet. Click * Tools / Project Stats … * in the main menu to run this procedure, and the following screen will appear:

Here you can select the desired project from the list and configure parameters of the data range to be displayed (time interval, the level of detail). You can select a predefined set of visible columns from the drop-down list in the toolbar:

  • display all columns;
  • display all columns, except those with text messages (like “Task definition” or “Last message”);
  • display the columns used for preliminary evaluation purposes.

Other elements of the toolbar are similar to those used in the Navigator (see “Navigator”), including the Export button which enables export of the current contents of the statistics window (including thumbnails of the mediafiles) into a spreadsheet.

Some statistics values are dynamic, i.e. depending on the time period that you selected in the top pane. These values are:

  • planned salary - preliminary wage calculations, done using planned hours, horly pay rate of assigned employee and default pay rate (in case no one is allocated on a task);

  • requested working hours;

  • confirmed working hours;

  • salary;

  • other expenses;

  • total cost – a sum of salaries and other expenses;

  • total balance – calculated as the difference between the budget and the total cost;

  • cost overrun - calculated by the formula

    <принятые часы> / <запланированные часы> * 100 - <прогресс>.
    

11. User Statistics

In addition to the Project Statistics, Cerebro offers a tool to collect User Statistics - across all projects in the universe. Go to Main menu/Tools/Users&Resources Ststistics… to launch it.

There is a switch in the upper side of the User Ststistics window that toggles between the two modes:

  • My statistics – the data analyzed and displayed relates to the current user only;
  • Users/Resources statistics – offers a list of users and resources to pick one or more entities for analysis from.

Parameters such as time frames or user’s tasks nesting levels are adjustable.

Results which include statistics on the work done by users and calculation of their wages are displayed in the table, which can be exported as a spreadsheet or copied to clipboard.
