Monitoring a Project
A Gantt chart lets you see immediately what should have been achieved at any point in time.
A Gantt chart lets you see how remedial action may bring the project back on course. Most Gantt charts include “milestones” which are not part of a traditional Gantt Chart.
However, for representing deadlines and other significant events, it is very useful to include this feature on a Gantt chart.
Gantt chart software often includes everything needed to monitor a project.
Planning and Scheduling
Use a Gantt chart to plan how long a project should take. A Gantt chart lays out the order in which the tasks need to be carried out.
Early Gantt charts did not show dependencies between tasks but modern Gantt chart software provides this capability.
Henry Laurence Gantt, an American mechanical engineer, is credited with the invention of the Gantt chart.
Try Gantt chart software to help with planning and scheduling your next project.
