A calendar that can serve as the project calendar or a task calendar. A base calendar defines the default working times for resources.

In earned value analysis, this is the budgeted cost of tasks that have been completed (or the portion completed of each) by the status date. BCWP also is called earned value, because it represents the value earned in the project by the status date.

Note that Project doesn’t support a burdened labor rate directly; if you want to use one, simply enter it as a resource’s standard or overtime cost rate.
