This lab assignment gives you a chance to practice creating a WBS within MS Project or your chosen PM software tool. It is due at the end of Week Four.


•  Create a WBS in MS Project or your chosen PM tool


•  This lab assignment follows the construction example described in the MS Project Tutorial in your textbook, appendix B.

[NOTE:  I am NOT asking you to work through the entire tutorial in Appendix B!!!   The objective is for each student to show evidence of having selected, downloaded/installed (if necessary) a PM tool, and get your feet wet entering just the WBS into the tool.   This is a very simple assignment and should take only a few minutes once you have selected and installed the PM software of your choice.]    Please don’t over-think it.

•  Your WBS should be created in your chosen PM tool for the tasks listed below
•  Submit your document to the instructor via Canvas as an image file (.jpg, .pdf, .gif)
