Default How to Track Actual Time Spent Against Plan


I have been struggling to answer this for a while, be grateful for some help.

Basically I have a plan with tasks and want to be able to manually key in the amount of time that a resource works on a task so that I can produce a burn-up graph showing whether the project is delivering against effort(work) as well as deadline.

For example. Task A is planned to take 5 days work over 10 days duration but it completes in 8 days using 6 days work.

Any suggestions as to the best way to achieve this would be welcome?

as a simple approach, you could use a baseline to get the info directly from the programe. Failing that (and possibly a better choice if tasks vary over time, eg more added or some deleted) use project compare. Once you have that you can take actual against budget work, and plot in excel.
There are better and/or easier ways, but it really depends on how much task variance there is likely to be, and how it was set up initially.
