What is a WBS + Dictionary?


WBS is a project-management tool that systematically breaks work down into smaller chunks. It keeps work on track by integrating scope, cost, and schedule  baselines. A WBS (with WBS Dictionary) is often a required deliverable for federal contracts. The WBS dictionary describes the work assigned to each Element in the WBS, including such important details as milestones, costs, and owners.
