What is Resource Breakdown Structure?

The resource breakdown structure (RBS) is a tool within project management. It is hierarchical listing of resources necessary to complete a project and a resource is everything with a cost that is needed to complete the project.

The use of a resource breakdown structure can provide many advantages to a project, particularly when the project requires a complex array of different resources. Resource breakdown structures allow managers to keep track of which resources are needed for which phase of a project and which personnel are supposed to work with which resources. Using one can help ensure that resources are where they are supposed to be during the appropriate phases of a project and that redundant resources are not purchased or used.
