Working with the Product Breakdown

A project planning is typically a product planning. In your project in the tab Planning all products in your project are shown in the section Product Breakdown. This product breakdown contains both planned products (that are in the Gantt), and not planned product (that are not in the Gantt). The main functions of the product breakdown are:

Drag-and-drop products to or from the Gantt.

Create new products.

Delete product from the project entirely.
Note: if you delete a product from the Gantt, it still exists in the product breakdown.

Add a hierarchy to the products.

It can be used as a product library (it should then be pre-filled in the Project Model).


The product breakdown is visualised on the project tab Product Breakdown (see below)
