Material Track RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have Two task. Task A and Task B

    Task A resources are

    Material-Cement is 1000 unit

    Work-Tonie is 1 unit

    Task B resources are 

    Material-Cement is 1500 unit

    Material-Brick is 10,000 unit

    Work-Jakson is 1 unit

    Task A is completed 100% and Task B is 10 % 

    But problem is that in 'Resource Cost overview' it is showing that 

    Cement Actual work 1000 and remaining 1500

    Brick Actual work 0 and remaining 50000

    But I want that as 10% work done in task B, so actual work should be 10%50000=5000 and remaining 45000

    Can anybody help me ?

  • Hi,

    10% of actual from bricks make 10% times 10,000 = 1,000 untis actual, remaining being 9,000 units.

    I just reproduced your example which gives me the following resource usage (and which seems to be ok):

    And the resource overview report corresponds:

    Hope this helps,

  • Go to File, Options, Schedule, somewhere down the page check the box

    "Updating Task Status updates Resource Status"

    Now Project works as you expected!

    The 10% on the task did not change the resoruce (bricks) status because the option was off.
