    Hi not sure if someone answered this, but a work contour is a method of front-loading/back loading etc. resources in regard to there time on a task.

    For example. If you want them to work most allocated hours at the beginning of the task and for the hours to taper off towards the end then you select the image that slopes downwards from left to right.

    the reverse is true for back loading resources. etc.
