    Notes to the Author

    [This document is a template of a Work Breakdown Structure document for a project. The template

    includes instructions to the author, boilerplate text, and fields that should be replaced with the values

    specific to the project.

    ; Blue italicized text enclosed in square brackets ([text]) provides instructions to the document

    author, or describes the intent, assumptions and context for content included in this document. ; Blue italicized text enclosed in angle brackets (<text>) indicates a field that should be replaced

    with information specific to a particular project.

    ; Text and tables in black are provided as boilerplate examples of wording and formats that may be

    used or modified as appropriate to a specific project. These are offered only as suggestions to

    assist in developing project documents; they are not mandatory formats.

    When using this template, the following steps are recommended:

    1. Replace all text enclosed in angle brackets (e.g., <Project Name>) with the correct field document

    values. These angle brackets appear in both the body of the document and in headers and

    footers. To customize fields in Microsoft Word (which display a gray background when selected)

    select File->Properties->Summary and fill in the appropriate fields within the Summary and

    Custom tabs.

    After clicking OK to close the dialog box, update all fields throughout the document selecting

    Edit>Select All (or Ctrl-A) and pressing F9. Or you can update each field individually by clicking

    on it and pressing F9.

    These actions must be done separately for any fields contained with the document’s Header and

    Footer.

    2. Modify boilerplate text as appropriate for the specific project.

    3. To add any new sections to the document, ensure that the appropriate header and body text

    styles are maintained. Styles used for the Section Headings are Heading 1, Heading 2 and

    Heading 3. Style used for boilerplate text is Body Text.

    4. To update the Table of Contents, right-click on it and select “Update field” and choose the option -

    “Update entire table”.

    5. Before submission of the first draft of this document, delete this instruction section “Notes to the

    Author” and all instructions to the author throughout the entire document.
