The Gantt chart is a type of bar chart that is helpful in laying out the tasks associated with a given project. When executed properly, the Gantt chart helps to ensure that the project schedule is maintained at a reasonable pace, and that the individual tasks that make up the work breakdown schedule logically progress in a manner that moves the project closer to completion. Shows key dates, such as start and finish dates. Can help to identify who is available to work on a specific task. A Gantt chart can be used for just about any type of project, from laying out a marketing strategy or planning a building project.
Gantt Charts Two main types of activities • Activities that can not take place until others happen. Sequential tasks should start when previous task is completed. • Example: cannot put car engine in a car body until the car body is made Sequential Parallel • Activities that are independent of each other. Parallel tasks should finish at the same time • Example : Some workers can work on the car engine while other can place the car seats together. Gantt charts are used to find the optimum time to be spent on individual tasks.
