work package

A work package is a part of the work breakdown structure with which the project management defines all the steps required for the completion of the work package. The combination of work packages forms the completed project

. A single work package contains the essential steps required to complete the work package and a deadline by which each of those steps must be completed. Work packages allow multiple project teams to work on many different components of a project simultaneously. Each team follows the steps defined in the work package and completes them by the specified deadline. When all teams have completed their individual work packages, the entire project can be assembled. In most cases, the completion of a work package is overseen by a specific person, whether that person is a manager, supervisor, team leader, or a specific team member. A work package is usually the lowest level of the project management process.
