Chapter 6. Entering Resources > Working with Cost Rate Tables

Working with Cost Rate Tables

Similar to the ability to define a contoured resource availability, cost rate tables allow a project manager to model projected changes in a resource's rates over time, as well as allow a resource to have several different rate structures. This is useful when a resource's work is billed at different rates, depending on the type of work he does. For example, if a resource develops in Visual Basic, he is billed at $150 per hour, but if he develops in C++, he is billed at $175 per hour.

The “Defining Different Rates Over Time” section shows you how to define a changing rate over time. An example of this is when a project manager knows that a resource will receive a raise in pay on a specific date and she wants the project cost projections to include that raise.
