|September 2002||Issued Caltrans Project Management Handbook 4th Edition, Revision 1
Issued Caltrans Guide to Resource Breakdown Structure (RBS), release 3.1, August 1998, updated September 2002 (pdf, Word)
This Guide provides the updated RBS hierarchy, RBS descriptions and the RBS Change Control Process. The Resource Breakdown Structure (RBS) is a standardized list of personnel resources related by function and arranged in a hierarchical structure. It is a resource-driven system that identifies "who" is doing the work. The total resources define the Top Level, and each subsequent level is a subset of the resource category (or level) above it. Each descending (lower) level represents an increasingly detailed description of the resource until small enough to be used in conjunction with the WBS to allow the work to be planned, monitored and controlled. The hierarchical structure also allows "roll up" analysis at a variety of levels for Top Management, Project Managers, Functional Managers, or for staff.
