Creating Planning Components

Sometimes, there just isn't enough information available in the WBS to determine what activities are needed in the activity list. For example, let's say you're building a new home for your customer.

This isn't a problem at the beginning of the project, as your construction team can get to work building the home, but there will come a date when the homeowners must make a decision on the materials and components they'll want in their schmancy kitchen.
