3. (TCO C) Work Breakdown Structure WBS

Speedy Computer, Inc. (SCI) is going to introduce its first laptop computer. Although SCI recognizes that it is a late entry into the market, it believes that there is room for an inexpensive product at the low end of the market. Its design process will start with a conceptual design performed concurrently with the disassembly and analysis of a select group of the competitor's products. The best components consistent with the conceptual design will then be used as the basis for the working design.

• A prototype will then be developed with a focus on using components that are readily available in the marketplace. The prototype will be tested for technical performance and ease of use, and a cost estimate will be prepared to determine if the product could be profitably manufactured.
• If the prototype shows promise, work will begin on a marketing program and operations services, which include the development of user manuals and service programs.
• Manufacturing will be performed by subcontractors to the greatest extent possible to reduce risk. Final assembly and testing will be performed at SCI's existing facilities.
Prepare a work breakdown structure (WBS) for this project with activities corresponding to a two level task and sub-task hierarchy. Provide columns showing the WBS code and activities. Number and indent the WBS codes so that the level of each activity is clearly identified.
