Time Cost Component of Project Analysis
This study aims at examining the cost component of project analysis with respect to the strategic budgeting and decision making process within corporate enterprises.

The study examines data provided by a 2012 Fortune 25 company that spans a diverse girth of cultures, industries, and business units. The corporation donating the data, names of the projects and the actual dollar figures used are concealed due to the extremely propriety nature of the data and possible negative market implications of the data.
