UniPhi 17 - Work Breakdown Structure UniPhi Style.

Back to Blogs

UniPhi Software, 17 May 2021


For those of us who haven't consumed the guide to the Project Managers Body of Knowledge published by the US based Project Managers Institute, a Work Breakdown Structure is; "a deliverable-oriented hierarchical decomposition of the work to be executed by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables. It organizes and defines the total scope of the project." Sounds exciting doesn't it.

If that has got the juices flowing then you'll be ecstatic to hear that UniPhi 17 comes with a new contracts interface that allows you to build that WBS to as many levels as you like. Yep, this new feature will support tracking earned value on every cent or pence you spend on your project. It took 17 years to convince our founder that project managers are that anally retentive but we got there in the end.

Below is a screenshot of this awe inspiring functionality. Funky things include drag and drop re-ordering, drill in to a specific deliverable to create more and commentary at the deliverable level.

All jokes aside, the real power of this change comes from the integration of this functionality with time-sheets, earned value and issues directly related to a deliverable. You can also use this functionality to price up jobs with rates libraries coming from the resources module at the classification or individual level.

This integration means that you can enter this WBS once and use it to quote, track and report. Now that is amazing!

Come back Thursday for the next installment of the UniPhi 17 release series.
