ERP Labor Cost Types - make entries to define which cost type are labor.
ERP Division Code - make entries to define which division codes to import from the ERP system.
ERP System Cost Centers - The drop down at the top will allow you to INCLUDE or EXCLUDE the list underneath. So you can set the filter to include a set of cost centers, or to exclude a set of cost centers. Sometimes it is better to exclude cost centers, so if new cost centers are added in the ERP system they will automatically be included.

Red Line Variance Percent - enter the allowable production rate variance before the phase code show RED. For instance you might consider a task on-track if it is within 10% of the estimated production rate.
Use Quantity for Labor Forecast - if you check this, the user will not be able to enter percent completes into phase codes with production quantities. The percent complete will be calculated by the system based on the production quantities.
This controls the automated email notifications reminding users to maintain their percent complete entries. The system will send an email to each ROLE where it is defined. The notification is either a summary or detailed report of phase codes where hours have been entered but no updates have been entered.
