What is a task and sub-task (WBS - work breakdown structure)

WBS in project management is a method that breaks a project down into a hierarchy of deliverables, tasks, and subtasks. It is a tree structure, which shows a subdivision of effort required to achieve an objective.

In a project or contract, the work breakdown structure is developed by starting with the end objective and successively subdividing it into manageable components in terms of size, duration, and responsibility (e.g., systems, subsystems, components, tasks, subtasks, and work packages) which include all steps necessary to achieve the objective.
