Work Breakdown Structures examples, created for a multi-project IEEE 802.11 department project portfolio.
What this is
Work Breakdown Structures created for a multi-project IEEE 802.11 department project portfolio. This portfolio was composed of projects to create or enhance networking systems that include hardware and firmware components as well as cross-functional manufacturing and support activities.
There are three Microsoft Project 2000 WBS example files.
Why it's useful
These work breakdowns were used by the Director of the technical development department responsible for these products, to provide a portfolio-level Work Breakdown view of all the projects in his department and a starting point for defining the WBS for each project in his department in a consistent way. The completed WBS Level 3 for this Business Unit has high level project resources allocated from Project Management and Marketing. The expected start dates and durations of the phases are included. The predecessors are linked, giving the business unit a very high level project portfolio overview.
How to use it
Consider how these views might be useful for constructing the high level work plans for your organization and edit the templates or create your own based on this suggested format.
Take this opportunity to define standard work breakdown approaches for the projects in your organization. See the appendix at the end of this file containing guidelines for WBS creation.
Note: You must have Microsoft Project installed in order to edit this file. If you don't have MS Project you can still view the file using one of the many MS Project viewers on the market. (Google on "Microsoft Project viewer" for scads of possibilities.) You may also want to look into Microsoft's 60-day free trial offer.
