Assigning and Managing Resources in Microsoft® Project 2013

Changing the maximum units for a resource

The amount of productive time that a resource is available is defined by the Max Units value for a resource. If it’s sufficient that your work estimates include admin time, such as answering phones and so on, then you can leave the Max Units for each resource at 100 percent. If, however, you want to set a resource’s productive time to be less than 100 percent, you can set the resource’s Max Units to the value you choose.
