The Work breakdown structure WBS is the deliverable hierarchical decomposition of the work. It is used as a form of monitoring tool in order to understand the tasks to be completed over the course of the project. This is a tool that is usually updated periodically and will enable the management of each activity as per the deliverable and the sub deliverable that has to be passed on at every stage. Each of the planned work in the WBS become part of what is called the work packages and these are then easier to be schedules, cost estimated, monitored and controlled. The WBS connects with scope management, because WBS details would be useful for defining the cost, schedule details and the deliverables. Once the WBS is defined then the boundaries for each of the sub task is defined much more clearly.
Project outcomes must be measurable. The measurement, examination and the testing of the product is necessary as it will show how the customer whether the input was met. The compete scope verification would be done here. It will be necessary to include inspection in the form of reviews, product reviews, audits and walkthroughs. In the measurement, examination and the testing of the product both the functional and the nonfunctional requirements are usually tested as well. It is necessary to asses if the product performs as well as the deliverable that was presented to the client as initial documentations earlier. Where there is no adherence to the quality it would be possible that the client would not accept the deliverable. Also the outcome review need not be conducted at the end, the outcome review could as well be conducted as part of the project management process, from beginning to the end point.
There are different project deliverables for different stakeholders and hence it is critical that the project deliverables are communicated to the stakeholder in the right time. Project deliverables are tangibles that are delivered as a result of the project completion. At the beginning of the project, the documentation on what deliverables would be are submitted to the client and once the project is complete, then these tangibles are then submitted to the client after verification and assessment. They would be submitted end of the project with the proper documentation, the training manual if any, the QA tests and more for user acceptance.
