Applying Distribution Curve Data



Thank you in advance for any help with this, I feel like this is so above my head I dont know where to turn to get the answer.



In an easy example for a 21 day task, you can see how this should look in theory. What I'm trying to determine is how to even approach this and what calcs I would need to use and how I should possibly transform my data. In the example below you can see how the 21 points are applied to a 21 day task.



The Problem:

I have 2 tables of data

  • Resource Table - this table holds all of the costs and the dates in which they occur on. see the example below.
    • I have added a daily hour count column which determines how many hours will be worked that day
    • activity total hour duration - this is a sum of the daily hour count


      perday_cost - this is average of remaining cost then divided by total hours and then multipled by daily hours to determine how much cost will be associated for that date


  • the second table is the curve data table. this provides a 21 point distribution of cost over the duration of the activity
    • This table connects to the resource table based on curve_id
    • What I need help with is determining how I can appropriately apply the curve points to my daily costs? Not as easy for something that isnt exactly 21 days long

Hi @Jbrunson09 ,

I am a bit confused about your requirements, Could you please describe your calculation logic specifically? It would be nice to give an example of the calculation logic.

Thanks for your efforts & time in advance.
