Please refer following blog to understand difference between planning package and work package: https://www.izenbridge.com/blog/what-ar ... g-package/


Some times, we have a set of related smaller activities which have no dependencies each other. But, these activities have to be completed to get the goal of their summary level activities. We can choose to group these smaller activities which we call as Hammock activity. For example, we plan a vacation; we have to do many small size activities - book a ticket, book hotel, shopping. You can do these activities in any sequence. You can group them as a Hammock.

These activities have to be completed to start your vacation.
