Chapter 7. Working with Resource Assignments > Understanding Assignment Units

Understanding Assignment Units

The Units value you can edit in the Assign Resources dialog is an important part of scheduling your resources in Project. This value controls how Project schedules the Assignment Work value for the resource. A 100% Units value means that for the duration of the assignment, the resource will be scheduled to work 100% of the hours its calendar defines as working time.

The following example shows a five-day, Fixed Units task to which Brian has been assigned at 100%. Because Brian's calendar says that 100% means 8 hours per day, this makes the Assignment Work value equal to 40 hours.
