Another aspect of the planning process is constructing the work that will be required to complete the project. The creation of the work breakdown structure (WBS) arranges the work packages in a sequential fashion so the project manager can plan the schedule, resources, and responsibilities for overall project. This phase of the planning process also furnishes time estimates in order to ensure that the project will be completed in a timely manner, the initiation of human resources, and creation of a communication plan to ensure that all the stakeholders are well informed about the project. By developing a comprehensive WBS that includes time estimates, all resource management, responsibilities, and a communication plan, a project manager can establish a sound foundation for the project
The next step for the Asian Annex Expansion (AAE) Project is to create the WBS for the overall project. As outlined in the last report, the general activities of the project were established, but required expansion to create the work packages of the project. The WBS is a decomposition of all of the stages that must be completed within the project into manageable components in order to supply structure and progression (Zecheru & Olaru, 2016). Appendix A provides a decomposition of the AAE project in a WBS format that includes start dates and responsibilities of each work package.
Appendix B illustrates the same WBS structure with an added Gantt chart. The Gantt chart is…
