Creating the Work Breakdown Structure
Creating the Work Breakdown Structure

If you have obtained a project charter and an excited customer, why go to the trouble to build a work breakdown structure? After all, aren't you a software engineering professional? The work breakdown structure (WBS) is the heart of a project plan, as most of the other parts of a

Identifying the Tasks and Activities
Identifying the Tasks and Activities

As explained in "Creating the Work Breakdown Structure" building a product-oriented work breakdown structure (WBS) involves decomposing a large activity (the whole project) into successively smaller activities (top-down approach) until the work is explained in detail to manage
