The Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) forms the backbone of an integrated schedule. How do you set up an effective WBS? Should you choose a product-oriented or action-oriented WBS? In this module, the most important theoretical background of setting up a WBS is discussed, after which participants themselves get to work translating a schedule of requirements into an adequate and effective Work Breakdown Structure.
This training can be followed remote and in a classroom. Please indicate your preferences on the registration form. Read about the plan of remote training.
Although no specific prior knowledge is required, we recommend completing this course in combination with “Principles of Project Controls” (which are planned together on 1 day). It is also possible to follow this training as part of the Scheduling Engineer course.
After completing this module you will receive a Primaned Academy certificate.
