## How to Assign different Overtime Rate in MS PROJECT 2013

Hi,

in one of my Posts I have explained how to calculate and work with Overtime hours in MS Project 2013, so I am not going to do it again. This time I will explain how to apply different Overtime Rate (as well as Regular). Suppose that you have John who has to work on Task, and his regular rate is \$100 per hour, and overtime rate is \$200 per hour. But on this specific Task you what pay him \$400 for overtime work, and \$100 for regular work (per hour of course).

Let’s go. First I will create John as Resource and I will put those numbers in MS PROJECT 2013.

When I double click on John I will put \$100 for regular work and 400 per Overtime work for John in Table B!

Now I will make 20 hours as overtime.

When you double click on the lower part of the screen go to Format Tab and then choose this:

I will put 20 hours as overtime:

Let’s take a look at the Cost Table:

20 hours regular work * \$100 = \$2000, and 20 hours overtime work * \$200 = \$4000. \$2000+\$4000=\$6000!

But we want another overtime rate! Use Task Usage View:

Back to the Cost Table:

20 hours regular work * \$100 = \$2000, and 20 hours overtime work * \$400 = \$8000. \$2000+\$8000=\$10000!

It is a little bit tricky, but now you know how!

Regards!
