Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)

The WBS serves as the significant starting point for developing the project. Generating the WBS, dis-aggregates the scope of the project into discrete, and hierarchical work items. This helps with resource planning, cost and duration estimating and to a lesser degree, uncovering dependencies between the work elements. The tool in the link below, will provide you with some structure examples, as well as the ability to make your own and experiment with structures as a learning opportunity.
