The Define Activities process consists of identifying & documenting the specific actions to be performed.

  • To produce project deliverables.

The key benefit of the Define Activities process is to break down work packages into activities;

  • These activities provide a basis for all project work, regarding;
    • Estimating
    • Scheduling
    • Monitoring
    • Controlling

Implicit in this process is proceeding in such a way that project objectives will be met;

  • The process of defining & planning the schedule activities.

The Create WBS Process identifies the deliverables at the lowest level in the WBS - Work Package.

    • Activities represent the work effort required to complete the work package.
