Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)


Instructions:
This template presents a standard Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) design for planning and monitoring IT
projects at NCDOT. It provides a framework for developing a plan/schedule for any project.
To create a schedule in the selected project management tool, refer to the WBS template and perform the following
steps:
1. Set up the Project Initiation, Planning, Execution, Controlling and Closing Phases
as the 2nd Level of the WBS.
Note: the Project Definition is the 1st Level of the WBS.
2. Review the 3rd Level WBS elements listed under each project phase and:
a. Delete those not relevant to your project.
b. Add new elements (add appropriate number of "Other" boxes and rename)
3. Incorporate WBS into project management tool.

You must have "Tools/Options/View/Comment Indicator Only" checked in order to see on-line help.
