Microsoft Project supports two types of duration scheduling:
- Resource-driven scheduling
- Fixed-duration scheduling
In resource-driven scheduling, duration is determined by the amount of work to be done and the number of resources applied to the task. Project calculates by the formula Duration=Work/Units. Resource-driven scheduling is specified by choosing No in the Fixed field box on the Task Form (Fixed=N).
In fixed-duration scheduling, duration is not calculated from resource assignments. The Project Calendar is used with the duration to calculate the Scheduled Start and Scheduled Finish dates. Project calculates by the formula Work=Units*Duration. Fixed-resource scheduling is specified by choosing Yes in the Fixed field box on the Task Form (Fixed=Y).
