The WBS view breaks down the project in its major deliverables, i.e. major product or service components. The Work Breakdown Structure of the project helps you maintain a top down overview of the main project deliverables.
When you create your WBS first and then the activities that fall within the project deliverables, you can maintain a focus on the final product or service, which is the whole purpose of the project.
