Create Project Management Tasks

In the Planning list, representing Planning Process Group, create the Estimate activity resources task and subtasks corresponding to the output of the Estimate Activity Resources process:

  • Develop resource requirements
  • Develop basis of estimates
  • Develop resource breakdown structure
  • Update project documents

Create Project Management Documents

In the Docs section, create the output documents:

  • Resource Requirements
  • Basis of Estimates
  • Resource Breakdown Structure

Resource requirements identify the types and quantities of resources required for each work package or activity in a work package and can be aggregated to determine the estimated resources for each work package, each WBS branch, and the project as a whole.

Basis of estimates detail for resource estimates may include:

  • Method used to develop the estimate
  • Resources used to develop the estimate
  • Assumptions associated with the estimate
  • Known constraints
  • Range of estimates
  • Confidence level of the estimate
  • Documentation of identified risks influencing the estimate
