Hi Eric,

We have gone thorugh this thread.You have given like

3 = Green
2 = Yellow
1 = Red

How can we set this.We are only able to set the weights of each one.

We are using 7.1 SP5

Thanks

Hi Shravan

You will be able to set the weight "project Health" section in Project Types under administration.

Is this what you are looking for?

Shravan,

The formula is the same regardless of the values you use for your weights, except if all three are weighted the same you can simplify it to

(sched health + cost health + issue health) / 3

Keep in mind that the 1/2/3 for Red/Yellow/Green is just there for the math, so you don't really ever change those values - instead, you determine for each type (issue/schedule/cost) what constitutes Red/Yellow/Green then you set your desired weights so you can get an average health result considering all three factors.
