1. How does the WBS differ from the project network? The WBS is used to identify each deliverable within the project, which division within the organization is responsible to accomplish the deliverable, and what the budget and duration of the deliverable are. The WBS provides a frame work for tracking the costs associated with the deliverables and the organization responsible. It is hierarchical in its organization. The network is sequential and provides a project schedule by setting all resource needs, project work, and budgets into a sequenced time frame: the WBS does not do this. 2. How are WBS and project networks linked? Work packages are part of the WBS – to set up the network project managers use time estimates found in the work packages of the WBS to set it up. Dates for the project are computed once the network is set up by the project manager because the budgets, time estimates, and resources required for a work package in the WBS are set in time frames, but without dates.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
