    Title:
    How to setup resource overhead cost for Maintenance work orders in Oracle Maintenance Cost
    Summary:
    How to setup resource overhead cost for Maintenance work orders in Oracle Maintenance Cost
    Content:

    Hi,

    Our users are looking for a solution which will be used to calculate the resource overhead in addition to the time charged by resource against the maintenance work order.

    The overheads are like Benefits = 18%* Resource Cost, then other additional percentage calculation. Also, they want to account the expenses which are not in percentage, for example, mileage expense charges(Gas used to travel to different locations for performing maintenance activity).

    Please let me know how can we implement all the above scenarios using resource rate and overhead rate setups?

    Also, when I am trying to set up the Overhead cost, I am not able to find the resource rate as a parameter on top of which I can calculate the percentage which will get further added to the total resource cost.

    Thanks

    Ekansh

      Hi Ekansh,

      You can navigate to the Manage Resource Rates page and define rates for the resource. In the details section, you can define the base rate for the resource mapping to a resource cost element type and adding an additional line for an overhead cost element type. We don't yet support specifying the percentage of overhead and basing it on the resource cost (its on the roadmap). But the current method of setting up as I described should also work.

      Thanks,

      Kaushik
