Understanding the Effects of Changing Task Duration

Recall from Hour 10 that the duration of a task is determined by how long it takes the driver resources to complete their assignments. Therefore, the task's finish is tied to the finish of the driver resource assignments. When you increase the duration for a task, Project increases the assigned work for the driver resources, but leaves unchanged the assignments for resources who aren't working when the task finishes. When you reduce task duration, Project reduces the assigned work for the driver resources and reduces the work only for non-driver resources.

Note

For projects scheduled from a fixed finish date, changes in duration affect only the assignments for resources who are working when the task starts.
