Gant Chart is a graphical representation of tasks as segments
on a time scale. It helps plan and monitor project development or resource
allocation. The left hand side of the Gant chart is a column with lists
of tasks. The horizontal axis is a time scale, expressed either in absolute
or relative time.
||In a Gant chart, each task takes up one row. Dates run along the
top in increments of days, weeks or months. Rows of bars in the
Gant chart show the start and end dates of each task in the project.
Tasks may run sequentially, in parallel or overlapping.

|History of a Gant Chart|
Gant chart was created by Henry L. Gant,
an American engineer, in 1917. He developed the first Gant chart
for planning of building ships in the First World War times. The
chart proved to be such a powerful analytical instrument that
it had not undergone any changes for almost 100 years. It was
only in 90s of the last century when link lines between tasks
were added to the Gant chart.
Addendum: Gantt Spelling
Widely discussed, but difficult to spell, and far more than a buzzword, Gantt's unusual surname gives rise to much dismay
as people search for information on Gant Charts, Ghant Charts, and Gannt Charts. As such, I have included these common misspelling.
