The Yield Cost report provides insight into the cost to complete Production Tasks based on the Yield Performance of a team or individual combined with the appropriate fully-loaded (hourly) rates.

The higher the Yield for a team or individual (assuming hourly rates remain constant), the less cost required to complete Production Tasks.

For example:


Hourly Rate

Yield Cost (per hour of output)

Team A




Team B




Team C




This report is particularly useful for assessing teams that share functions or tasks that are geographically dispersed.

Note - while similar to Contribution Cost, Yield Cost differs as it factors in the time spent on Supporting Tasks whereas Contribution Cost only looks at the time spent on Production Tasks.
