Introduction

In Microsoft Project, resources come in two basic types: work and material. A work resource is any person or thing that is assigned to work on tasks. People are the most common kind of work resource, but work resources can also be pieces of equipment or machinery that are required to finish a task. Material resources are things that get consumed by the act of working on a task. Examples of material resources are lumber on a construction project, or network cable on an IT project.

Work resources have calendars that define their working and nonworking days and times. How Project spreads work assigned to a resource across time depends primarily on that resource's calendar settings.
