FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Deep integration with hierarchies of work breakdown structures (WBS)
CAMBRIDGE, MA, November 19, 2018 — WeatherBuild®, Decision Support Solutions for the Construction Industry and Built Environment®, is proud to announce powerful advances in deep schedule integration with Oracle’s Primavera P6 Enterprise Project Portfolio Management (EPPM). WeatherBuild now supports data exchange between and deep integration with hierarchies of work breakdown structures (WBS).
Better plan for and react to weather events by deliverable-oriented breakdowns
Co-founder and CEO of WeatherBuild, Adam Omansky highlights that “deep integration with hierarchies of work breakdown structures (WBS) now enables leading contractors and owners to better plan for and react to weather events both at the activities level and by groups of dependent activities in deliverable-oriented breakdowns.”
Further, the Defense Acquisition University (DUA, www.dau.mil) defines as a work breakdown structure (WBS) in project management (PM) and systems engineering, including construction, as “…a deliverable-oriented breakdown of a project into smaller components… organizing a project team’s work into manageable sections.”
Project Management Institute’s (PMI, www.pmi.org) A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition) defines a work-breakdown structure as “…a hierarchical decomposition of the total scope of work to be carried out by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables.”
Data exchange between and deep integration with work breakdown structures (WBS) empowers leading contractors and owners to weather risk adjust first for forecast weather events, schedule impacts and safety risks and, second for actual outcomes or “ground truth” by deliverable-oriented components of the project or maintenance schedule.
Weather risk adjust by deliverable-oriented components of the project schedule
The Defense Acquisition University is a corporate university of the United States Department of Defense offering acquisition, technology, and logistics” training to military and Federal civilian staff and Federal contractors.
A Guide to the Project Management Body of Knowledge (PMBOK® Guide – Sixth Edition) is PMI‘s flagship publication and is a fundamental resource for effective project management in any industry. It has been updated to reflect the latest good practices in project management.
