How does “Resource curve” work?

 

Let say we have an activity with 100 days duration and 100 labor units. By default it use Linear spread.

It mean, when you reach 5% of duration (5th day in this example) you have 5% of total unit (5 unit in this example). And it spread evenly to that period.

So resource spreadsheet will be like this:

Now if I change to 6 %.

It mean, when you reach 5% of duration (5th day in this example) you have 6% of total unit (6 unit in this example). And it spread evenly to that period.

So resource spreadsheet will be like this:

Similarly, when you reach 10% of duration (10th day in this example) you have 5% more of total unit (5 unit in this example). And it spread evenly to that period.

So resource spreadsheet will be like this:

And it follow that regulation until the end of curve.

Now you understand how the resource curve work.

Hopefully it will help you to distribute resource unit as your wish:-)
