The screenshot below shows analysis results of two identical scenarios but using different spending strategies.  The one on the left uses only the specified expenses whereas the one on the right uses the Fixed % Spending method wherein the specified discretionary expenses are replaced with variable spending based on a set of strategy-specific rules while the non-discretionary expenses are as specified on other pages

PRC models several spending strategies in addition to using the expenses explicitly specified on the various input pages.  Strategy selection is done on the page from which the analysis is initiated as can be seen in the example below where the Fixed % Spending strategy has been selected.
