A Work Policy defines relation rules between the three following task and resource related characteristics:
Progress Impact is a link between two work items where the completeness of one work item impacts the completeness of the other.
When you create a sub-item under a specific work item, Progress Impact link is automatically created. The progress of the sub-item will automatically impact the "parent" item's progress.
You can manually create Progress Impact links between two items, that do not have a hierarchical relationship, from the Progress Impact panel.
In this panel you can also define the weight of the sub-item within the overall completeness progress of the impacted work item.
According to standard methodology, a dependency is a logical schedule link between two project work items and defines the sequence of work between them, e.g., launch can be performed only after product is developed.
There are four types of schedule dependencies:
To demonstrate the different types, lets say that Task 2 is dependent on Task 1.
Duration of the work item represents the time required to complete the activity.
Duration can be entered into the system in minutes, hours, days, weeks or months (see Time Unit Formats for more information).
