product line involves three new products, two of which will be introduced together and a third
one that will follow within two years. Product number three will be elaborated in more detail

although it could be. “The WBS should be created next, and it encompasses the full scope of
work for the project. Only the work of the project is listed on the WBS.” is not correct because
the next process after the scope management plan is created is the Scope Definition process.

the Create WBS process and the technique of elaborating some deliverables at a later date is
called rolling wave planning.
