I will explain how can you enter up pay rates for a resource to apply at different times in MS PROJECT 2010
Suppose that you have a Resource with name Mary. Mary is working on your project, and se has 300$ / day. From 23.06.2011 she will has +50% more (e.g 450$/ day)
First I will add two tasks and I will link them:
Now I will add Mary as Resource:
I have left Standard Rate $300/day.
Now I will add two pay rates for Mary. I will now +50%per day for Mary from 23.06.2011:
After I click OK I will get:
Now, I will assign Mary to the TASK 1:
You can see $7.200 in the Cost field. TASK 1 has 3 days duration, and Mary’s pay rate is $300/hour –> 3 days X 8 hours/day X $300 = $7.200
Now, I will assign Mary to the TASK 2:
You can see $16.800 in the Cost field. TASK 1 has 5 days duration, and Mary’s pay rate is $300/hour at 22.06.2011 and $450 from 23.06.2011 –> 1 day X 8 hours/day X $300 = $2.400 (22.06.2011) + 4 days X 8 hours/day X $450 (from 23.06.2011) = 14.400. $2.400 + $14.400 = $16.800
Now, I will choose the Cost Table:
and I will get:
If I delete row from pay rate:
I will get in Cost Table:
Why? TASK 1 has 3 day duration, and TASK 2 has 5 day duration = 8 days. 8 days X 8 hours / day X $300 / hour = 19.200.
Be very careful when you are adding or deleting pay rate for resurces.
