               A work breakdown structure (WBS) is commonly used in project management to structure a project’s deliverables into a hierarchy that is manageable and easy-to-use. To help facilitate one’s WBS creation, GPetrium has prepared a WBS in excel and a WBS in word.

WBS in Word

               The WBS in Word contains two graphical depiction of a WBS followed by their respective tables. It aims to give the creator the necessary space needed to help the audience understand what the project is about and the deliverables needed to reach its goals.

How to use the WBS in Word

               To start, open the file and go down to the table. Begin filling out the Level, WBS #, Name and WBS Description. Their definition are as follows:

  • Level – The stage that the deliverable or item is at within the hierarchy.
  • WBS # – A coding scheme to help clarify the hierarchy, numeration and subdivisions within the WBS.
  • Name – Short name used to define the deliverable within the WBS
  • WBS Description – Further information used to supplement the Name in case the audience or WBS creator needs it.

               Once the table is completed, it is time to transpose the data into its graphical format. To do that, go to the graph and click on it. A new pop-up with the hierarchy will appear, fill it accordingly.

               The excel solution works similarly to the word version, with the exception that there is only one visual available.
