Tools and Techniques for creating WBS

Work Breakdown Structure Templates

WBS templates provide a project specific structure for decomposition. As long as the projects are similar, these templates may be created with inputs for previous projects. For example, software developments have similar project life cycles ad similar deliverables.


Breakdown project deliverables into smaller, more manageable components is called decomposition. Breakdown should not be done until the cost and schedule for the work can be reliably estimated. The level of detail for work packages will depend on the size and complexity of the project.         

Steps to Create WBS

Identify final project products necessary for achieving project success.

Identify the major deliverables necessary for project success.

Decompose until management requirements for managing and controlling the project are met.

Review and refine the WBS until the stakeholders agree with the level of project planning, reporting and deliveries.
