You can install account_budget module and than you can configure budget in Accounting/Budgets/Budgets...

Note: We can define budget in OpenERP using analytic account.

You want to compare on a periodical basis (daily) the actual figures with their corresponding budget; I personnally do not recommend to modify the budget figures; the budget is a "fixed point" used as a reference for the whole period (monthly and annually).

A report with 3 columns is needed 1. budget 2. actual 3. remains to be achieved" i.e the difference between budget and actual

Such a report /dashboard can be designed for every major item of your business. (sales, Cost of Goods Sold, commercial expenses, G&A etc...)

I have not tested it, but I guess it is a basic function of OpenErp that you can configure at the Dashboard menu.
