I have an 8-month project am I planning. It's a software development project with 11 developers (and many other resources). I count "Devs" as one resource item, rather than Dev1, Dev2, Dev3 etc. On the "Devs" line in the resource sheet, I set the Max units to 1100% and set a per-hour rate in Std.Rate.
My expectation is that: when I assign 1100% of the "Dev" resource to a 5-day task in the Gantt Chart, it's 1100% (or 11) * the hourly rate.
However the cost against the resource in the task resources tab nor the cost reports reflect this. They reflect 1 "Dev" costs rather than my 11 Devs. Also, in the resource usage view, the hours still reflect the total hours for 1 developer, not 11.
I'm missing something, I assume, to allow for MS Project to calculate the cost / hours based on unit percentage?
