Work Breakdown Structure and Project Schedule

Work Breakdown Structure and Project Schedule

The Work Breakdown Structure helps break the project down into manageable parts in a process called decomposition. The number of levels in the WBS is related to the project profile. For this component of the project plan you will and develop a hierarchical WBS for the construction phase of the St. Dismas ALF project. The specific parts of the St. Dismas Assisted Living Facility case study you will need to prepare the Work Breakdown Structure for the project plan are listed below.

A project manager is responsible for developing and managing a plan to execute the work of the project in a way that will deliver the product or service when it is needed by the client. Depending on the profile of the project, the process, time, and resources needed to develop and manage the project schedule can vary significantly.

Project planning and scheduling is both an art and a science. There is a logical and methodical process for developing a network diagram and calculating the time it takes to complete a project. There is also a creative process for developing a logical sequence of activities and determining relationships between activities.

  • For this component of the project plan you will develop a Gantt Chart and a Network Diagram for the construction phase of the St. Dismas project.
