What this is

This Microsoft Project schedule for an office relocation project includes a detailed work breakdown, general scheduling and dependencies, resource allocation, and even beginning leveling information. The WBS runs from the initial space planning work to site shutdown and computer relocation.


Why it's useful

When you're planning something detailed and critical, like moving an office, it can be reassuring to see the estimates and resource allocations others used for similar tasks. It provides a nice sanity check, and a good baseline for your own planning and scheduling efforts. The example in this file won't be an appropriate WBS for every facilities project, but it certainly provides a good foundation. For many people, though, the real value will be in reviewing the resource allocation activities in progress in this example. Duration estimates and preliminary leveling information (assigned by role) make it obvious which resources are overallocated at times, and where additional help may be needed to meet critical goals.


How to use it

Double-click on the file icon to open up the embedded Microsoft Project schedule file, then save it to your hard drive. Review its WBS structure, resource allocation, estimates, etc. for ideas for your own project's work breakdown and scheduling. 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.
