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 Seniors,


Mr.zoltan (Sir you have posted a data on this issue in 2014 but I did not get it fully, how) 


Hope all of you are fine.

I have added a non-labor resource to an activity in my schedule. I want to calculate the cost of units.

  • First of all, I want to know what is standard rate & Max unit/time in the resource window (Unit & Price).Its function or how these 2 columns work together in cost loading process.
  • how it calculate budgeted cost w.r.t budgeted units in activity window( Resource tab).?
  • is our default unit/time & max unit/should be same on any schedule...?


Your earliest response is required

there is NO STANDARD rate and MAx units/time you set this based on your resources how they work together is that is you set price per unit to $2/LF and if you have 5 LF of whatever units that will make the costs $2*5=$10

Budgeted costs was already expalined above this will give you your budgeted costs based on the quantity of units.

default units/time & Max units can changed based on the resource being used. Maybe one resource is working 10 hours per day and another is working 8 hours per day.
