WBS Schedule Pro (formerly WBS Chart Pro)
WBS Schedule Pro is a lightweight Windows application built specifically for helping you design projects using the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) chart.
Generate charts from MPX files
It comes in handy for all users who need to sketch a project plan by defining multiple tasks and subtasks. Plus, the program is able to generate WBS charts directly from Microsoft Project files (MPX items).
Define a new task
WBS Schedule Pro sports a clean and straightforward layout that enables users to define a new task in terms of name, constraint date, cost details, start and end hour, duration, constraint info (e.g. as soon as possible, must start on), and other details.
Subtasks can be inserted to the left, right, above, or bottom of the selected task with just a few clicks. Plus, it is possible to arrange tasks according to your preferences by cutting, copying, pasting, moving, deleting, or repositioning them.
Alter the tasks
Furthermore, you can undo or redo actions, change task information, zoom in or out, show or hide subtasks, perform searches, set the chart layout (orientation, style, background colour, size), and insert information about the chart (e.g. title, subject, author, manager, company, comments), as well as customize the borders, lines, and task dialogs.
Built-in calendar and other handy tools
Other important features worth mentioning are represented by the possibility to use the built-in calendar for defining workdays and hours, summarize data for each level of the WBS chart, calculate the critical path to each end point in the project, set the default currency symbol, as well as schedule tasks.
The generated project can be printed or saved to WBS, MPX, JPG, PNG, TIF, BMP, or HTML file format.
An overall efficient and reliable WBS chart designer
All in all, WBS Schedule Pro is a reliable application that helps users design WBS charts with the use of hierarchical diagrams.
