You say that you don't want the machine to "produce" or "consume" "work".
There is no real difference between a biological resource and a
In your project, they both cost by the hour or the day and depend on the
Ok, the total Hours and the rolled up Hours will be a mix of people hours
and machine hours, but so what?
If you want your totals and reports for work to exclude the machine hours,
you can always filter out the non-biological resources.
On the flip side, sometimes it is convenient to class a sub-contractor who
supplies labour and materials in one fixed price contract as a Material type
Resource rather than a Work Type, to exclude their Work Hours from totals
But again, an alternative would be to make him a Work type resource at
$0/hour, put the cost into the fixed cost for the task, then filter him out
for the reports and totals for the direct hours of the bio-resources.
Sometimes alternatives are equivalent and other times one is right and some
are just wrong.

I've bypassed this in tree steps: first placing only the "normal"

have to correct the duration...
I think it must have a easier way to do that...
Thanks for any help.

It is not "labor cost" (it will not produce work), but will be charged
