The vector stencils library "Timelines and milestones" contains 24 shapes of time scales with start and finish dates, time interval bars with progress indication and brackets, milestone, event and today markers for drawing the timeline diagrams using the ConceptDraw PRO diagramming and vector drawing software.
"A timeline is a way of displaying a list of events in chronological order, sometimes described as a project artifact. It is typically a graphic design showing a long bar labelled with dates alongside itself and (usually) events labelled on points where they would have happened. ...
Another type of timeline is used for project management. In these cases, timelines are used to help team members to know what milestones need to be achieved and under what time schedule. For example, in the case of establishing a project timeline in the implementation phase of the life cycle of a computer system." [Timeline. Wikipedia]

How to Create a Timeline Diagram in ConceptDraw PRO

A Timeline is a chart which displays a project plan schedule in chronological order. A Timeline is used in project management to depict project milestones and visualize project phases, and show project progress. The graphic form of a timeline makes it easy to understand critical project milestones, such as the progress of a project schedule. Timelines are particularly useful for project scheduling or project management when accompanied with a Gantt chart. It captures the main of what the project will accomplish and how it will be done. making a project timeline is one of the most important skills a project manager needs have. Making comprehensive, accurate timelines allows you getting every project off in the best way. ConceptDraw PRO allows you to draw a timeline charts using special library. Read more
Timeline charts presents events and time periods on a chronological scale. They are used in project management to visualize project milestones and upper level phases, and show project progress.
"Within the framework of project management, a milestone is an event that receives special attention. It is often put at the end of a stage to mark the completion of a work package or phase. Milestones can be put before the end of a phase so that corrective actions can be taken, if problems arise, and the deliverable can be completed on time.
In addition to signaling the completion of a key deliverable, a milestone may also signify an important decision or the derivation of a critical piece of information, which outlines or affects the future of a project. In this sense, a milestone not only signifies distance traveled (key stages in a project) but also indicates direction of travel since key decisions made at milestones may alter the route through the project plan."

"A project plan, according to the Project Management Body of Knowledge, is: "...a formal, approved document used to guide both project execution and project control. The primary uses of the project plan are to document planning assumptions and decisions, facilitate communication among stakeholders, and document approved scope, cost, and schedule baselines. A project plan may be summarized or detailed." ...
The objective of a project plan is to define the approach to be used by the Project team to deliver the intended project management scope of the project.
At a minimum, a project plan answers basic questions about the project:
Why? - What is the problem or value proposition addressed by the project? Why is it being sponsored?
What? - What is the work that will be performed on the project? What are the major products/deliverables?
Who? - Who will be involved and what will be their responsibilities within the project? How will they be organized?
When? - What is the project timeline and when will particularly meaningful points, referred to as milestones, be complete?" [Project plan. Wikipedia]

The PERT chart shows the logical connections and consequence of a set of tasks. PERT charts the time period for problem solving and the implementation plan for all activities along the critical path. The PERT chart is also known as a precedence diagram or project network diagram.
"The Program (or Project) Evaluation and Review Technique, commonly abbreviated PERT, is a statistical tool, used in project management, that is designed to analyze and represent the tasks involved in completing a given project. ...
PERT is a method to analyze the involved tasks in completing a given project, especially the time needed to complete each task, and to identify the minimum time needed to complete the total project.
PERT was developed primarily to simplify the planning and scheduling of large and complex projects. ...
A network diagram can be created by hand or by using diagram software. There are two types of network diagrams, activity on arrow (AOA) and activity on node (AON). Activity on node diagrams are generally easier to create and interpret." [Program Evaluation and Review Technique. Wikipedia]
