MS Project & WBS
MS Project & WBS should go hand-in-hand, however if you have ever worked in MS Project and tried to create a WBS, then you may be familiar with WBS Codes. Rather than a simple interface allowing you to visually create a WBS, MS Project requires you to define WBS Codes and create yet another linear list with Indents to define hierarchical levels. Don't get too stressed, there is an alternative: MindView WBS software.
