Scheduling Resources for a Specific Amount of Work

If the task is not Effort Driven, then you can use the Assign Resources dialog box to calculate the number of resource units needed to complete a specified amount of work (given the task's defined duration). Normally, you enter a simple percentage in the Units column of the Assign Resources dialog box. If you enter a work amount in the Units column (a number followed by a time unit instead of a number and a percentage), then Project calculates the Units value for the resource that is needed to do the work you entered within the current duration for the task. But remember, this method will not work if the task is Effort Driven. In that case, you have to enter the work in the resource details area of the Task Form.
