    Adding Materials to projects

    Learn how to add Materials and their quantity to projects.

    You can add 3 types of resources to your project:

    • People – work that’s done by people and quantified in either man-days or hours. Learn more
    • Materials – all the materials you are planning to use on the project. These will be quantified in number of units.
    • Other Costs – all other costs you anticipate on the project. These will be items that are hard to quantify, e.g “Travel expenses”. Learn more

    Adding Materials and their planned quantity

    Adding Materials to your project is similar to adding People.

    However, Materials are priced per item and you will be entering the total quantity, rather than effort.

    Add Material name

    add material
    Enter the Internal cost for a unit of this Material (this is how much this Material will cost you).

    material cost
    Now enter the Client price (if it’s a billable project). This is how much you charge your client for a a unit of this material on the project.

    material price
    Next, enter the Total quantity of this material you are planning to use on the project.

    material quantity

    As you are entering the Materials, the BudgetInternal Cost and Profit in the header change to show the total for the project. You will also see the total Budget in the tab header.

    material total

    Now, that you have a first rough estimation out of the way, it’s time to experiment with different versions to arrive at the final estimate so you can start tracking the project.
