Non Working days and Time Dependent Costs

Post by Tomico » Thu Aug 29, 2019 3:39 pm

Can I use weather calendars with non-working days when calculating resource costs?

The answer to your question depends upon they type of project you are modeling. Non-working times that include exceptions as well as periods where work cannot be performed due to weather conditions, do not calculate work for affected resources. However, in some projects, weather delays (non-working time) still incurs resource costs as the specific resources are required to remain on site. If this is the case, you should use a calendar that does not include non-working times for weather, so that the time-dependent resource costs for downtime are calculated.
