Overview – Project Review (1YF)
The Project Review (1YF) process is specifically designed for project managers to steer their internal project – for example R&D projects – through the organization and keep all involved stakeholders (such as a steering committee) informed.
It gives project managers direct access to the cost progress of their project.

It enables the project manager and their team to provide regular project updates to the Steering Committee members of the organization and other stakeholders.

The project is active for certain period of time and has cost booked against it from Material, Services and Resources.
