Default Resource not getting enough hours allocated to them, therefore extending duration

Hi

I have a base calendar of 8 hours per day.

Example:

I have Bob who has a resource calendar of 6 hours per day.
Joe has a resource calendar of 4 hours per day.

I assign them both to a 40 hour task as follows:



Bob at 80%, and Joe at 20%.

Why is the duration calculating 7.38 days?

Additionally when I go into the resource usage view, it shows the following that joe is only being allocated 0.8 work per day. This is extending the duration. Further more the dates are 31/07/14 - 13/08/14. This is not 7.38 days??!!

Please help!

Thanks

jo

You have assigned Joe at 20% of 4 hours per day (his calendar) which is .8 hours per day. You have assigned Bob at 80% of 6 hours per day (his calendar) which is 4.8 hours per day. If you want Bob to work 6 hours per day and Joe to work 4 hours per day, assign them at 100%.

I get 6.5 days calculated with a task start of July 31 at 8:00 am and a finish of August 13 at 12:00 pm. Bob is working 32 hours (80% of 40) and finishes at 12:00 pm on August 8 - and Joe is work 8 hours (20% of 40) and finishes on August 13 at 12:00 pm.

In File, Options what is your definition of "hours per day"".
