Adding costs to P6

Resource Loaded Costs (common, but lot to manage)

  • You can assign costs to resources. So when you assign a resource to an activity, the cost rolls up as that resource is used (hours x rate).
  • You can change their rate in resource dictionary.
  • Add resources on fly once they in the dictionary.
  • When resources are typically added, their rate is just multiplied by the duration. 

Expenses added to activities (somewhat common)
  • You add an expense to an activity and reduce it over the course of the duration of the activity. Very manual.
  • You can front-load, back-load, or do uniform spread over activity. 

Also good videos on YouTube that explain it.
