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)
