Lower level elements must come from MIL-STDC where available. • Created by CWIPT prior to RFP. – Data quality increases when WBS defined up front. Derived from MIL-STDC. • Product-oriented WBS structure composed of hardware, software, services, data, and facilities elements. • Created by CWIPT at . 17 Jul A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) (MIL-STDC) is a tool used to define a project in discrete work elements in a Hierarchical format.

It also provides direction to industry in extending contract work breakdown structures. It is a product-oriented family tree composed of hardware, software, services, data, and facilities, which result from systems engineering efforts during the development and production of the system and its components, and which completely defines the program.

Overall System Level 2: Changes to the Standard specifically address advances in technology and modifications of the acquisition process, and incorporates new materiel items, developmental concepts, and approaches.

The PM with the support of systems engineering develops the first three levels of the program WBS, and to provide contractors with guidance for lower-level WBS development. A program WBS is established to provide the framework for program and technical planning, cost estimating, resource allocation, performance measurement, and status reporting.

This Standard offers uniformity in definition and consistency of approach for developing all levels of the WBS. A Work Breakdown Structure WBS provides a consistent and visible framework for defense materiel items and contracts within a program.

Generating and applying uniform work breakdown structures improves communication in the acquisition process. MIL-STDC is based on the cooperative iml of the military services with assistance from industrial associations.

This Standard addresses mandatory procedures for all programs subject to DoD Instruction This top-down structure provides a continuity of flow down for all tasks. The WBS is prepared from both the physical and system architectures, and identifies all necessary products and services needed for the system.

Enough levels must be provided ml properly define work packages for cost and schedule control purposes. The WBS is a means of organizing system development activities based on system and product decompositions. It relates the elements of work to be accomplished to each other and to the end product. An integrated team representing these Stakeholders is needed to support WBS development.


It is for direction and should be included as a contract requirement. This military standard is applicable to all defense materiel items or major modifications a established as an integral program element of the Future Years Defense Program FYDPor b otherwise designated by the DoD Component or the Under Secretary of Defense Acquisition.

Major Elements Segment Level 3: The WBS defines the total system of hardware, software, services, data, and facilities, and relates these elements to each other and to the end product. C Download File – 2.

Though WBS development is a systems engineering activity, it impacts costing, scheduling and budgeting mll, as well as contracting officers. In other words the WBS is an organized method to breakdown a product into subproducts at lower levels of detail.
