    As modern management techniques, specifically the WBS application may determine the success of a project, regardless of its objectt, as such achieving predetermined performance indicators. Contained within this framework, we propose in article to present the approach particularity, specific reasonings, additional to considerations regarding the necessity and usefulness of this particular technique. Given the complexity and dynamic internal process specifically of the framework Project Management Unit (PMU), additional to the necessity of resolving with professionalism the problems which are subject to this type of entities, WBS may constitute by itself a particularly effective method regarding resource management, the risk management and the achievement objectives in conditions of technical and economic high performance. From the perspective of exercising the least three attributes towards management (planning, organizing and controlling) the WBS application may confer a competitive advantage specifically obvious by the fact that makes it possible that the prioritization activities/operations/and service tasks in close correlation with the own objectives or the UMP pyramid. Consequently, large-scale application of the WBS chart in which fully supports the management team to realize with a higher accuracy the key elements concerning the resource requirements and their judicious allocation, costestimation, schedule deadlines, etc., all in their interconnection, are apt to provide a more qualified substantiation of managerial decisions.
