The Overview tab gives you a general picture of the project's financial performance. It includes such metrics as:
|Profit||Actual Billing - Actual Cost|
|Expected Profit||EAC Billing - EAC Cost||EAC = Estimate at Completion|
|Billed||(Billed Labor + Billed Expenses) / EAC Billing * 100%||EAC = Estimate at Completion|
|Actual Cost||Actual Labor Cost + Actual Expenses|
|ETC Cost||ETC Labor Cost + ETC Expenses||ETC = Estimate to Complete|
|EAC Cost||Actual Cost + ETC Cost||ETC = Estimate to Complete|
