    Sub network or the fragment network is the chunk of work or work packages within the network diagram.

    Now coming to the template, if you are using the same or similar network diagram for every project, you need not build the network diagram every time. Make it as a template and use it as it is for every project network diagram building, may be with minimal change.

    For example let us say in the software development life cycle(SDLC), design is one of the phases. Typically for any SDLC, the design phase consists of designing High Level Design(HLD) and Low Level Design(LLD). Let us say HLD and LLD are the work packages. To develop HLD and LLD the activities are draft, review, review updates, baseline and publish. And these activities, work packages and sequencing are usually similar in any project of the design phase under SDLC. So build this as fragment network template( which is small portion of the big network diagram) and re-use it.

    If you look into the MS Project 2013 when you open the application, before opening the new sheet or page, you can find lot of templates based on different industries and is almost standard in all the organization like the way I explained above. So you can pick up these template and start filling the duration, resource, predecessor instead of writing each and every activity or work package.

    Hope this answers your query.
