  • By default, Project will compute duration based upon a 40 hour work week.  You can create a custom calendar and make Saturday and Sunday working days, however, if you only setup the calendar to "show all working days to include Saturday and Sunday" then the weekend would still be counted as non-work days.

    Below is a link that will show how to change the work hours/days in your calendar.
