WBS-Work Breakdown Structures

A Work Breakdown Structure is a results-oriented family tree that captures all the work of a project in an organized way.


there are two type of WBS chart.

1. Product Oriented or Deliverable Oriented WBS
based on the achievement and objectives of the project

2. Process Oriented or Task Oriented WBS
based on the tasks

Generating a WBS from Microsoft Project
There is a third-party add-on software application for MS-Project called WBS Chart Pro that will convert your Gantt chart task list with indents into a standard WBS graphic in a few clicks. You can also use this application to create a WBS and transfer it back MSP. I have found this software very valuable in organizing project work into a WBS, reviewing the scope of proposed projects, and helping managers visualize the WBS implicit in their MS-Project schedules
