Need a WBS example, please help

(OP)
Dear colleagues,

Could you please share an example of a WBS for a complex engineering project (like thermal or nuclear power plant, etc.) with numbers?

Thank you!

are you kidding?

RE: Need a WBS example, please help

I was on a nuclear ship that was being refueled in 1974. The WBS was hand written and attached to a wall. The writing was small enough that you had to get within 18 inches of the wall to read it. It covered an 8 ft high by 20 ft long wall. There must have been 20,000 individual tasks on that chart. I'm sure that today it would be in Primavera or something like that, but it is still tens of thousands of tasks. No one is going to share that with you on a public forum.

I'll trade you for the design documents of a complete fission reactor as well as all construction documents.
