What is per man hour

what does per man hour mean does it mean that you charge them like $50 for every guy you need to work that job or what


so lets say you need 2 men and you gave them a quote of $50 per man hour
does this mean you will be charging them $100 an hour cause there are 2 men there?

Let's say you estimate that it will take 1 man 4 hours to do the job. In theory two can do it in two hours. Four can do it in 1 hr. Eight can do it in 30 minutes.

Regardless, the bill is the same, 4 man hours times the hourly rate.

Yes. A man hour means one man for one hour. A job that will take twenty man hours could be one man for twenty hours or two men for ten hours or four men for five hours or twenty men for one hour. (These examples do not consider efficiencies or inefficiencies of more than one man)
