Micrsopft Project calculating cost from fixed cost and duration RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all,

    I am working on MS Project. I set the cost of a ressources as a cost for 1 day working (my developer has a cost of 200 USD per day fro instance)

    on my task I have a duration of 4 days. In the column cost, I would like appear 4*200=800 USD.

    Does someone knows how to help and set up my MS project for that?

    Many thanks

  • Hi,

    Nothing complicated here.

    Start by creating in the resource sheet the resource with a standard rate of 25$/h (200/8hrs a day = 25).

    Then create a 4-days task and assign the resource on the task. The work will automatically be calculated at 4day assuming the resource is full time (100% unit). Thus the cost will also be calculated based on the standard rate:

    Hope this helps,
