Work Breakdown Structure (acronym “WBS”) is a technique generally used in project management and business organization to determine and classify discrete work elements of a project or a business process in the way that helps understand and describe the total work scope of the project/process to produce deliverables. Any project manager as well as business manager should understand the importance and use software solutions to manage projects and processes. There are special WBS applications and WBS systems that allow building tree-like structures, defining work scope, managing tasks, and understanding Work Breakdown Structure pros and cons . This article aims at helping you understand the comparison “WBS application vs. WBS system ”. It also suggests a software solution for managing projects and business processes.

WBS planning takes more time than it might seem at first sight. If you want your project or business process to be well planned, you need to learn WBS technique and use WBS application or system in order to create appropriate tree-like decompositions. You can watch special presentations and read competent books to learn the technique. This article won’t give you the description of job decomposition but it will guide you through features of WBS systems and applications.

WBS application is a software solution that includes features for planning tasks required for running a project or process and composing these tasks into a structure that may have multiple levels and hierarchies. Mainly, such applications feature tools that let do the following:
  • Specify elements , compose them into hierarchies and set activity levels
  • Create work packages at activity levels and define unique packages of work
  • Set measurable and auditable project deliverables per WBS level and identify resources (employees) responsible for performing tasks at each activity level
  • Determine durations of activities and design work schedules
  • Make job estimation and measure performance
  • Create performance reports, analyze decomposition elements and build Work Breakdown Structure chart (WBS chart)

Managers will benefit from building WBS examples , work decompositions and task hierarchies. However, WBS systems offer more powerful functionality which is described below.

WBS system is a subset of tools for creating, managing and editing Work Breakdown Structures. The main difference between WBS system and WBS application refers to data exporting-importing capability. WBS system allows synchronizing internal data with external programs, such as Excel and HTML editors, while WBS application has no capability to do so.

VIP Task Manager can be used as a WBS system that allows exporting tasks and project views into Excel spreadsheets, HTML files, and text documents. VIP Task Manager features Task Tree view that allows you to set necessary format and use templates to simplify management of projects and processes.

VIP Task Manager uses a client-server technology that allows sharing files over local network and Internet. All files can be stored on a server and users will access the server to read and edit shared files. You can share your project documents and build a flow of project documents.
