Work Breakdown Structure

(Alias: WBS)

The Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is a graphical method for depicting the scope of deliverables and services to be produced by a project. The WBS depicts the work as a family tree or hierarchy in the same way a manufacturer would represent the bill of materials breakdown for a cell phone or automobile. The WBS decomposes the project into its component deliverables and services which are then further partitioned into activities and tasks.

The Work Breakdown Structure

The Work Breakdown Structure is a graphical method for planning the scope of deliverables and services to be produced by a project. It represents project works as a product oriented family tree of: deliverables, services and work packages. It identifies and describes what's to be developed and links each end product to a statement of work. Your WBS tree can have any number of levels:

  • Level 1 represents the entire project.
  • Level 2 elements provide the major partitioning of the work
  • Level 3 contains definable components, or subsets, of the level 2 elements and so on.

The optimal depth of your tree is governed by the amount detail you need to effectively plan and control your project.

RE Definition: Work Breakdown Structure setup

The very first step is to switch to ij.start.cannon. This is the official Canon website and a secure platform from which you can simply download Canon printer drivers. So to get started, open a compatible and extremely protected web browser. Correctly type
ij.start.cannon in the address bar and pressing the enter key will instantly redirect you to the Canon homepage. To begin the printer driver download process, click on the Setup tab and the Product Name window will be visible on your screen. As Canon recommends separate software for your particular printer model, you must specify your model number by entering it in the search box. Click the Go button and the product download window will appear on your screen . To confirm that the driver you are going to download is compatible with your operating system, you must choose between different versions of the operating
system. Therefore, go to the OS field which is in the upper right corner and select a suitable operating system.
