WTF Next? Dev ramblings from a master of nothing.

If you’re trying to make a WBS from your suite of 2007 applications, Microsoft Download Center has a Visio add-on that might save you some time.

To get a WBS pumped out quickly, just do the following:

  1. Download and install Microsoft Office Visio 2007 WBS Modeler.
  2. Open Visio, and start from the new WBS Modeler.
  3. Open Project and open the project you want to make a WBS for.
  4. In Visio, click WBS Modeler, then Import From Microsoft Office Project…

Click through a couple more settings and here you have it. An easy WBS, and best of all it is free! When I was looking around the best alternative looks like it will run you around $200.

I have tried to download the wbs modeler from the MS website but unable to. Does anyone have the file, and can they send it to me.

The Visio 2007 WBS modeler only works with Visio 2007 PROFESSIONAL. Older versions of Visio had an export to Visio feature, but this has been removed and replaced with the Visio 2007 Professional only WBS modeler add-in.

Does anyone know how to get the total task cost to display in the WBS that is produced in Visio by this method?

Thanks,
Benson
