Requirements Breakdown Structure (RBS) vs Work Breakdown Structure (WBS)

A Requirements Breakdown Structure (RBS) is a hierarchical, usually tree-shaped tasks or activities of all project requirements which must be conducted or delivered in the end product in order to achieve the expected business goals.

Whereas a Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) focuses the 'how' of a project, an RBS focuses on the 'what' of a project.

A Work Breakdown Structure (WBS) is a deliverable-oriented hierarchical decomposition of the work to be executed by the project team to accomplish the project objectives and create the required deliverables. A WBS is the cornerstone of effective project planning, execution, controlling, monitoring, and reporting. All the work contained within the WBS is to be identified, estimated, scheduled, and budgeted.
