How to make all working hours as Overtime hours in MS PROJECT 2010?

Hi,

I have a question from one of my Blog Readers! Here it is:

“About overtime, I tried to apply 12 hours a day on Saturday and Sunday, it’s a 2 day work (driving car) and It allocates 24 hours on Saturday. Both days are dayoff (rest time), so it’s 24 hours overtime rate. Is there a way to allocate 12 hours a day?”

Let’s do it!

I will create two Tasks in MS PROJECT 2010:

Now I will put Saturday 20.10.2012 as a Start Date for the first Task:

image

I will add John as Resource with $100 as Standard Rate, and $200 as Overtime Rate:

image

and finally I will assign John to both my Tasks:

Now I will use Work Table, and I will put 12 hours per day, instead 8:

Now I am going to look at the Detailed View:

and I will get:

I will put 12 hours per day instead of 8:

Now I will switch to the Detail View:

I will click at the bottom part of the screen, and then:

and I will get:

Now I will put in Ovt. Work 12 hours:

and I will get:

John is no more overallocated!

Let see a Cost Table:

and I will get:

image

John will work 12 hours per day (Saturday and Sunday) and his Overtime Rate is $200! So 12 X $200 = $2400 per day!

And that’s it!

 

Regards!

 

 

 

 

Link them for now!

Now I will put Sunday 21.10.2012 as a Start Date for the Second Task:

So I am making Sunday as a working day!

Now I will remove Link between this two Tasks and I am going to put Saturday 20.10.2012 as a Start Date for the first Task, again:

and I will connect them:

    Hi Nenad,

    I’m very happy to find this blog, it has proven to be very useful.

    Very interesting post but somehow I got a different result

    One question:
    Every time I allocate the whole 12 hours to overtime the Duration column turns into 0 and the start and finish dates and time are the same. When I manually change the duration to 12 hours no it’s assuming that I will be working 12 hours of normal time and 12 hours of overtime.

    Second question:
    Have you considered doing videos instead of screenshots, it would be easier for us to understand and I guess you would save time.

    Thanks a lot!
