Work package description

The Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) provides a visual breakdown of the total project scope. The components that make up the WBS are the outcomes required for a successful project presented as manageable parts that a project team and stakeholders can understand.

A starting WBS for the project is provided at the link below. It describes the project scope (the ‘what’) necessary for systematic and integrated VI Control Improvement (EMESRT Levels 1-9) at an operating site.

Note: while project scope and budget will be reviewed and updated over the life of the project, working systematically through each WBS phase to develop a project schedule is highly recommended.

A project schedule based on the WBS that is updated and reviewed over the project life ensures timely completion of the project.

Project schedule management is assumed to be an existing ‘Company’ competency covering:

  • Creating, maintaining, and following agreed schedules
  • Identifying and managing constraints
  • Reporting
  • Forecasting
  • And other project management skills
