Project Pulse contains powerful baselining functionality which can be used to increase the accuracy of estimating future project efforts.  Once the project is ready for execution, the project can be baselined which will store the current values of estimated hours, task durations and costs.  Project Pulse has baseline fields not only at the project level, but also for project phases and tasks.  This provides a rich amount of information that can be used to historically compare project performance at any of these levels, within and across project teams.

For example, we might find that a certain type of project is always running over what we estimated.  Or, a certain task is taking less time that what we have set in our template.

We can easily create a report to compare our performance over time by these various perspectives and make whatever adjustments are required in our service templates.  By doing so, we create a continuos feedback loop which over time, will help to improve our project estimating process.
