Task Type Explained .... I hope

Fixed Work (Effort Driven)

If work is changed then duration will change

If another resource is added to task then both duration and work will reduce

If duration is changed then units will change and work (effort) remains the same (fixed work)

If units are changed then duration will change and work (effort) remains the same (fixed work)


Fixed Unit (Effort Driven):

If duration of fixed units task is changed then work will change

If work of fixed units task is changed then duration will change

If another resource is added to fixed unit task then both duration and work will change

If units for both resources are changed then work will remain same but duration will change


Fixed Duration Effort Driven

If work is changed for fixed duration task units will change and duration will remain the same

If units are changed for fixed duration task then work will change and duration will remain the same

If duration is changed for fixed duration task then work will change and units will remain the same

If another resource is added to fixed duration (effort driven) task then both work and units will change
