Create a Custom Field using the Duration Field Type that will return the exponential value of the total hours spent on a work item.

Hours(Exp($ActualEffort/Hours(1)))

$ActualEffort\Hours(1) is used to normalize the actual effort in amount of hours (regardless of whether the effort was entered in days, weeks, etc). The Hours() function is then used to convert the effort back to the duration field.
