Re: Project Health calculation formula?

It's just a weighted average of the schedule, cost, and issue health. You set the weights for each in the Project Type and/or in Project Settings.

I suppose the mathematical formula would be:

[(sched health * weight)+(cost health * weight)+(issue health * weight)]/sum of weights

so if

3 = Green
2 = Yellow
1 = Red

and your health scores are [Green, Yellow, Yellow], and you weighted them 2,2,1 respectively:

[(3*2)+(2*2)+(2*2)]/6 = 2.3

, or Yellow if we can assume they use a cutoff of 2.5 for green, etc.

Hope this helps.

Erik,

Sorry to hi-jack this, but I've seen you mention you can edit how to determine project health. Would you mind telling me how that works?
