Microsoft Project WBS

You would think that Microsoft Project & WBS would go hand-in-hand. Sadly that is not the case. If you have ever worked in Microsoft Project and tried to create a WBS, then you are probably familiar with WBS Codes. Rather than using a simple interface that allows you to visually create a WBS, Microsoft Project requires you to create yet another linear list with indents to define hierarchical levels and define WBS Codes in order to create the WBS. Don't worry, there is an alternative: MindView WBS Software.
