WBS with dependencies created for a 100-person project to develop an Access Point and PCMCIA card using IEEE 802.11b technology.
What this is
This schedule was created for an Access Point and PCMCIA card using IEEE 802.11b technology. (The real names of the companies, products, project name, group names and names of the company's phases were changed to retain confidentiality.)
This Master Schedule was produced in the Initiation Phase of the project. It includes input from the software, hardware, mechanical engineering, marketing product management, technical publications, human factors, test systems, quality assurance, software release, operations, manufacturing, customer service and other various groups.
This was a project directly involving almost 100 full time resources in various groups, and spanned multiple quarters.
The primary firmware was outsourced to an OEM company. The applications, security and installation software were developed by RTG.
Why it's useful
This WBS is provided as one example of a full cross-functional product development schedule, to provide ideas for how to structure such schedules, hopefully allowing others to get some useful WBS ideas from what this team constructed for this major project.
How to use it
Review the WBS structure, use of milestones, etc. for ideas for your own project's WBS. Edit it to create your own template if desired.
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.
