Guide and Best Practices

The resource breakdown structure is a project management tool that is used to hierarchically breakdown resources by category and type. It is used to breakdown resources that will cost money such as equipment, human resources, and material, machinery, etc.

How to create a resource breakdown structure

  • Creating a resource breakdown structure is the responsibility of the project manager. But to do so efficiently he/ she needs the input of the team.
  • Get the input of the team members or departmental heads with Creately’s real-time collaboration. You will be able to review changes they make instantly and leave feedback with pinpointed comments and discussion threads.
  • Create a list of all the activities that are key to completing the project. It should also include other important details that will help identify the resources needed.
  • Identify the resources needed for each of the activities. Here the project manager should focus on estimating the volume, and type of resources needed to complete the project efficiently and cost-effectively.
  • Consider the availability of the resources based on a resource calendar. The list of resources should be arranged according to their availability over the long term.
  • If the project involves several types of team resources, further decompose the team branch by adding information on skill level, required certification, etc.
  • If the project involves several locations, organize the resource breakdown structure by geography.
  • Download your RBS as a PDF, SVG, PNG, etc. so you can publish or share it with stakeholders.
