Task properties are critically important for the processes of task initiation, task performance and task controlling. Each task property plays its own role in the entire task specification. Every task attribute holds a certain informative value to describe some task parameter. Together task properties represent full picture of a task. Task properties help task performer to get a complete picture of what he/she is actually expected to do. On the other hand, task properties determine vision of the work from the side of its supervisor. Describing the complete task attribute set includes definition of all inputs and outputs - work purpose and quality, time parameters and everything that refers to identification of the task as a part of a greater project. During task performance each task attribute can be reported to supervisor in order to control if actual value meets planned/estimated.
