  1. Gather the inputs you will need to establish the baseline, such as the WBS, the project schedule, the cost estimates, and the risk management plan.
  2. Use the project schedule to determine when activities will be taking place.
  3. Use one of the methods for assigning costs, allocate funds for each activity or work package for the time period in which it will be taking place.
