You cannot directly “risk” work units. Work units are a measure of the amount of time spent on a particular task and are generally a function of resource assignment. Also the task type as discussed here: ... ement.html affect how units may vary.


If you use a task type Fixed Units, then the units will never vary. However, if you use Fixed Work varying duration will recalculate units, or Fixed Duration varying work will recalculate units. With this knowledge in mind, it is then possible to risk units by assigning duration risks to Fixed Work tasks, or assigning a duration risk to resources assigned to Fixed Duration tasks.
