Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Based on my experience in some EPC Projects, WBS is unique for different projects and developed specifically in accordance with the project Scope of Work (SOW). Different project will have different process, facilities, unit, etc. Anyway, in a certain level of WBS there should be a level for "standard work category (WC)". This WC is same for any kind of projects (example: cocrete work, tank erection, cable pulling, etc).

CBS is usually a Contractor standard cost code and it should have also a certain level for WC. Linking b/w WBS and CBS is here, WC of WBS and CBS. On the other term, we name this WC level as Work Packages. Lower levels are cost-based activities and their steps.

When established, we can apply Earned Value Method to measure performance in every level of WBS or CBS.

Primavera implements this kind of integration system.
