Measure to Forecast based on average

Hello,

 

I am having a hard time to create a DAX formula that will create a projection of when a project will be completed based on how much is being Earned per month. I am trying to achieve something like the table below, where Power BI would detect the last month the Contractor earned something (2021 May), and then it would do two things:

1- Calculate the amount of months remaining at the given Average Earned so far

2- Project the Average Earnings for the remaining months.

I had no issue on getting item 1, however I am still having a hard time to get the Average projected through the remaining months to complete.

 

Any ideas ?

 

Thanks,

1 create a date table, mark it as date table, and create a column of "YearMonthNumber"

2 create a relationship between fact table and date table with date columns

Thank you very much Daniel, it worked perfectly ! I am still kind trying to understand the magic you've done to create the logic in which Power BI would project these values forward, but I am very happy with your solution.
