MSP 5.3 Assigning Material Resources

This will be Lesson-05 (Part 5.3) in MS PROJECT 2010 Course and we will learn about:


Assigning Material Resources to Tasks. This includes:

1-Entering Resources on Task Information Tab

2-Entering Resources in Detail View

3-Adding Assignment Units


Material resources can also be assigned to tasks the same way as Work Resources -- through Task Information Tab, Detail View, etc. When Material resources are assigned to a particular task, there is no effect on the task duration, because material has no work related component. Material Resources add up to the task cost based on the number of units of the material being used.
