Merlin: Material units for resources

on 20. April 2010

Merlin supports many types of resources. They are:

  • Person Icon Person: equivalent to a worker or individual.
  • Company Icon Company: Contractor (group or individuals), suppliers, etc.
  • Equipment Icon Equipment: Machinery, tools, etc
  • Material Icon Material: Raw materials, supplies.

Materials differ from the other types in that they don’t do any of the work on which they are assigned to and have an option for you to determine their measuring unit. For example, you can choose the material unit “kg” , and your standard rate becomes cost per kg.

If you like to use another unit (‘piece’ for example ) than the pre-defined ones, simply type it in the appropriate text edit field of the inspector:
