GANTT CHART
Gantt Chart is mainly used for scheduling work used by project managers. Gantt chart is
essentially a bar chart with the task listed in the left hand column and fitted into appropriate time
blocks. These blocks indicate when a task should begin, based on task relationship and when
they should end. This type of diagram can be created using an electronic spread sheet or a project
management software program, such as Microsoft Project.

Gantt charts shows the following:

 Project status( by shading out tasks already completed)

 Estimated project duration

 Task sequences
