Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Hi All,

I'm in the process of building a fully resource loaded schedule and have recently been advised that I need to apply a 6% internal inventory charge to all materials to recoup internal stores costs.

The obvious answer is to adjust the price / unit for each material but that is not possible as these resources are already in use by multiple teams where this 6% rate doesn't apply. Total cost for all resources is calculated costs x units but I'm hoping someone can advise me as to how I could create and apply this 6% charge across the relevant materials.

Cheers

filer for what you want to change

go to tools

global change 

on the right select New

up top under Slect Subject area change that to Activity Resource Assignments

where resource id name equals whatever the resource name is

then budgted costs = budgted costs * .06

 

On the right select change 

then on the bottom select commit Chnagest

Is any way to material resource as primary resource - thats depends on if the # Units of the material is driving the activity

Second how to assign of unit of measure such as hour for labor and non--labor - yes go to the resource and look under the  

details tab and there is a drop down there for unit of measure. If you do not see the one you want you can add it by going to Admin then Admin Categories then Units of measure 

Third in resource tab of activity details of update primary resource is any setting to automatically update other resource

go to Projects and on the Resources tab under Resource Assignments set the settings there
