Gantt Chart In Brief

Gantt chart is a visual presentation used in project management to show overview of timeline for project activities and their inter-dependence. Each project task or activity is represented with a bar chart clearly displaying start and end date. Thus the length of the bar shows the duration required for a task to complete. This way multiple tasks when displayed as bar charts, shows work breakdown structure on a timeline. Essentially Gantt chart shows when an activity starts, completes, how long it will take to complete an activities and also overall project, which is a project schedule.

What Makes Gantt Chart Still So Popular?

Let’s look at the advantage and the reasons for which companies still use Gantt chart for project scheduling and tracking.
  • It is easy to understand for project manager and management
  • It offers better clarity of expected delivery dates and interdependency
  • It enables better time management
  • It can improve efficiency of a project team
  • It ensures accountability among team members in terms of timeline
  • It expects coordination among stakeholders in order to deliver things as per Gantt timeline

Gantt Chart Software

Once computers introduced new ways of working, project managers found they could save time in creating and updating their Gantt charts. Gantt chart software, also called project planning, project management, or project scheduling software, was created to automate the process to support more advanced Gantt requirements like creating task dependencies, adding milestones or identifying the critical path of a project. Many project managers traditionally used local desktop programs like Microsoft Project and many still do. But today, Gantt chart software has moved online, enabling anyone to create shareable and collaborative Gantt charts and projects plans.

Desktop vs. Online Gantt Chart Software

Online Gantt chart is the only way to go. Don’t get yourself trapped to desktop and legacy Gantt chart tools. Here is a detailed comparison of one such desktop Gantt chart tool and ZilicusPM, online project management software ZilicusPM alternative to MS Project.

Task Management vs. Gantt Chart Tool
