The Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is a deliverable-oriented hierarchical decomposition of the work to be executed by the project team, to accomplish the project objectives and create required deliverables. The ‘Create WBS’ is a process under which Knowledge Area?
A. Project Schedule Management B. Project Integration Management. C. Project Scope Management D. Project Cost Management
You are working as a project manager for a wind-powered vehicle manufacturing project, which is in its planning phase. You carefully gathered all your requirements from your key stakeholders and prepared a system requirements specification and project requirements specification documents. While presenting your documents to the project team, a project team member who is very enthusiastic about the project started talking about the duration estimates for each activity. Which of the following statements indicate your response to your team member?
A. WBS creation and Schedule development must be done after estimating durations B. Schedule development and Costs estimation must be done before estimating durations C. Scope definition, WBS creation, Quality planning, and Communication planning must be done before estimating durations D. Scope definition, WBS creation, Activity definition, and Activity sequencing must be done before estimating durations
D. Scope definition, WBS creation, Activity definition, and Activity sequencing must be done before estimating durations
A. The project team must be involved in developing the WBS B. The WBS must represent all product and project work. C. WBS should focus on activities rather than deliverables D. WBS is usually represented in a hierarchical fashion
C. WBS should focus on activities rather than deliverables
As an experienced PMP, you have found that running a WBS meeting is tricky because you need to find a balance between decomposition and excessive decomposition. When items are excessively decomposed it leads all of the following, EXCEPT:
A. It breaks the 100% rule. B. Inefficient use of resources C. Non productive management effort D. Decreased efficiency when performing work
A Project manager estimates the work to be accomplished in the near term in detail, at a low level of the Work Breakdown structure (WBS); while he estimates work far in the future as WBS components, that are at a relatively high level of the WBS. What is this technique called?
A. Decomposition B. Rolling wave planning C. Scope Creep D. Earned value planning
