Working offshore in the Oil & Gas industry, we incur costs based upon a minimum 12-hour day for personnel and on a minimum 24-hour day for equipment. Is there a way to keep MS Project 2007 (or any subsequent version) from pro-rating these costs over a scheduled day of lesser duration? Changing Default Fixed Costs Accrual under Tools, Options, Calculations doesn’t seem to have the desired effect.
Thanks for your reply. The calendar used doesn’t seem to matter. If there is a partial day the resource is still pro-rated. This normally occurs on the first day and last day of the project, but can sometimes occur during the project as well.
