Is there any difference between BOQ (BILLS OF QUANTITY) and WBS (WORK BREAKDOWN STRUCTURE)??? Anyone who can help me on this please.
Based on the construction industry, Bills of Quantity (BOQ) gives the project total budget and from what I know WBS it can also gives out the total project budget as well.

BOQ is the term Bill of Quantities which means is a document used in tendering in the construction industry / supplies in which materials, parts, and labor (and their costs) are itemized.
it consist of:-
S/N
Description
Unit
quantity
Price per Unit
Total price
lump sum( Grand total)

However WBS is (a hierarchical decomposition of total scope of work -hierarchical of deliverable).

it might consist of:
Activities
predecessor activities
duration in (days, ...)
effort hours
Resources (personnel or material)
estimated cost.

BR,
Mansour
Typically, a WBS only includes deliverables or work packages. The tasks or activities associated with those deliverables or work packages should not be included in a WBS. The WBS can be used to help identify those activities which in turn can then be used to build the schedule.
