Creating WBS (Work Breakdown Structure)

The Work Breakdown Structure is a deliverable-oriented hierarchical decomposition of the work to be performed by the project team to create deliverables.

The WBS subdivides the project work into smaller, more manageable pieces of work. Each lower level of the WBS represents further detailed breakup of the project work. Each lower level of the WBS represents further detailed break-up of the project work. The Lowest level WBS nodes are called work packages, which can be scheduled, estimated, monitored, and controlled by an individual or a team.

A Work Breakdown structure is a result-oriented family tree that captures all the work of a project in an organized way. It is often portrayed graphically as a hierarchical tree; however, it can be a tabular list “element" categories and task or the indented task list that appears in your Gantt chart schedule.

The WBS is commonly used at the beginning of a project for defining project scope, organizing Gantt schedules and estimating costs. It lives on, throughout the project schedule and often is the main path for reporting project costs. On larger projects, the WBS may be used throughout the project to identify and track work packages, to organize data for Earned Value Management (EVM) reporting and for tracking deliverables.
