$20, or $160.
Change one setting for the same resource, and see what you get:
Assigned to a two-day task: 150 percent
Now the resource is working 12 hours per day (150 percent of 8 hours) over
two days. With 16 total hours at the standard rate ($20) and 8 hours of
overtime ($30), this person will cost $560.
Customizing Cost Fields
When you display the Cost table with fields, such as the Standard Resource

neat shortcut is to customize those fields with a lookup table.
