Homogeneous task is a task that requires doing identical type of work from task's beginning to task's completion. For example writing a book can be considered as homogeneous task, because in order to complete this task you should write few hundreds of pages one by one. Another example of homogenous task is painting of fence, because this process consists of typical operations as well. In other words such task can be divided into equal portions - let's say you can write one page every day during one year or you can cover with paint one section of fence per minute.
Homogeneous task is an easy object for management, because you can easily plan such task and you can easily increase or decrease intensity of your plan. When you perform series of typical operations number of factors that can influence your performance is stable and your risks are known. To perform homogeneous tasks better you should try to set plan of maximal intensity (ex: try to complete your task twice faster) for the beginning. You should aim to work with increased intensity at the beginning of your task (but do not forget about quality of work), so you will be able to complete most of your task in the first half of time allocated for this task.
