Cost per Use

Per-use costs are one-time fees for the use of a resource, such as equipment. Per-use costs never depend on the amount of work done. Instead, they are one-time costs that are incurred every time that the resource is used. Although a per-use cost for a work resource depends on the number of assignment units used, a per-use cost for a material resource is applied only one time. For example, if a bricklayer has a per-use cost of $100 (instead of an hourly rate) and it takes three brick layers to complete a task, the cost is $300. However, a per-use delivery cost of $100 for a material resource like cement is applied only once per delivery, whether 10 tons of cement are delivered or 100 tons.
