Work breakdown structure methodology allows you to break down large units of your project work into smaller activities and subprojects which serve as a foundation for developing schedules of your project. It is like "breaking big rocks into small pieces". Work breakdown structure method (WBS method) is also called "work decomposition". You can use this method to structure your very large projects and divide larger entities into more and more granular components.
Implementation of WBS approaches requires using of project management software that has necessary functionality for structuring projects and creating task hierarchies and project trees. Many tutorials also mention about the necessity of user collaboration and data sharing functionally that project management software should have in order to let users do their best by making collaborative efforts and sharing information. For example, VIP Task Manager supports user collaboration and data sharing capability allowing users to communicate with each other. VIP Task Manager is project management software that features Task Tree view for building project tees, multi-level todo lists, task hierarchies, and template project structures. You can try VIP Task Manager for free during 30 days and evaluate its functionality for free.
- Launch VIP Task Manager and log in your database.
- Go to Task Tree view to create a tree-like structure for your project. You can use task groups to add "parent" and "child" folders in the project tree.
- Use Task List view to create, schedule, prioritize and assign tasks.
- Use Permissions panel to allow or deny users to access specific levels of your project tree.
