Gantt Chart Tips

  1. Most Gantt chart software will allow a project manager to add resources. He or she may want to add the names of those who will complete specific tasks. These are considered resources.

  2. A project plan can be created by using a work breakdown structure. This is a method of splitting tasks into sub-tasks and creating a task hierarchy. One will be able to view the task hierarchy to the left of the Gantt chart once it has been created. This helps one to visualize the steps needed to complete the project and helps estimate the time needed from start to finish.

  3. Tasks within a Gantt chart can be linked. This means that tasks must be completed according to the hierarchy. You will be unable to move to the next task until the one before it has been completed. In this way, the tasks within a project are interdependent.
