Introduction to project management/IPM103/Time/WBS
|“|| Work Breakdown Structure (WBS): A hierarchical decomposition of the deliverables needed to complete a project.
It breaks the deliverables down into manageable work packages that can be scheduled, costed and have resources assigned to them.
In large projects, the scheduling process follows the activities associated with initiation and scope planning (these are covered in more detail in IPM102).
Scheduling is dependent on a detailed breakdown of the activities and sub-activities to complete the project.
