Work Breakdown Structure(WBS) maintenance on outline and chart views, to layout work packages, set target date, sketch out estimate and track cost with natural gestures. WBS is able to be exported as PDF, Excel and images files, be sync across multiple devices, and to exported as project plan to QuickPlan.

WBS is a hierarchical and incremental decomposition of the project into phases, deliverables and work packages. It is a tree structure, which shows a subdivision of effort required to achieve an objective, for example a program, project and contract.

Maintain WBS in outline and chart view

Maintain work elements in outline view (like Excel with frozen and scrollable columns) and in graphics tree-style chart view, to divide work elements, set target date, input estimate and track cost (and automatically adds the costs up the element hierarchy) – with supports of continuous inputting and batch inputing.

  • Change work sequence – hold and move up/down
  • Change work group – hold and move up/down
  • Change work properties – double tap
  • Change work display properties – long press
  • Collapse/Expand group – tap on group icon
  • Collapse/Expand ALL groups – tap with two fingers together
  • Zoom – pinch
