Bus/Financial - Accounting / ERP Systems
English term or phrase: Plan-fact analysis
This text is from a website digramme and the subject is cost accounting in a Russian ERP system (like Sage):

‘Cost centers/Departments’
‘Plan-fact analysis’
‘Financial figures’
This functional module lets users:
Calculate detailed production, procurement and sales costs
Evaluate work in progress and finished goods

I wanted to change it to Planning progress analysis? But perhaps there is a better term...
