MS Project -> Non Effort Driven Tasks

If the task is non-effort driven, project assumes that the work of a newly assigned resource to be added to the existing work of all other named resources.

Example 1:

If you have a task that requires 32 hours to complete and one resource is working full time on task. This task required to complete in 4 days.

If you assign a second resource and who also works full time on this task; assignments of the existing resources will not be changed. Total work now rises from 32 hours to 64 hours and duration is still 4 days.
