Structure of the costs groups

In your operating review at the tab Results, there are three major groups of costs. On mouse-over the cells with the small black triangle, you will get additional information on the numbers.

Example of overview all costs after four years.

As you can see in this example above which shows the operating review of a demo team after four years:

  • the fixed costs have stayed the same during all four years, the fixed depreciation costs are one of them.
  • the variable costs depend on the occupancy rate like laundry: the more rooms occupied the more laundry.
  • the costs team decisions, will depend of course on the decisions the team took over the years.
