Gantt Chart Software
Project Planning Chart addresses the time of individual work elements giving a time line for each activity of a project. As it can be seen in the figure. On the chart, everyone is able to see when each activity starts and finishes but there is no possibility to determine when each activity may start or if we can start a particular activity before finishing the immediate predecessor activity. Therefore, we need somehow know the precedence relationships between activities. This is the main reason for using the following tools instead of using exclusively Gantt Charts.
Using the Gantt Chart software you can create and manage projects of unlimited size and length. Add and distribute as many resources as you need for your project.
Benefits of Gantt Chart Software for Windows and Mac OS X
- Speed - to make changes
- Flexibility - to look at alternatives
- Track many projects, each with many tasks
- Set and track milestones for your projects
- Communication - print reports or send software file to stakeholders or post results on web site
The Gantt Chart is the main interface in ConceptDraw PROJECT It summarizes the tasks in your project and presents them graphically so you can easily view your progress.

The left pane of the Gantt Chart contains a list of tasks and shows their dates, priority, assigned resources, and subtasks. Markers help you identify the different types of task.

The right pane of the Gantt Chart shows a timeline of your project. Colored bars cover the dates assigned to each task, and changes of color within those bars show the task’s degree of completion.

The purpose of ConceptDraw PROJECT is to track who does what, when, as well as reporting on the cost of your project over time. It will help you manage your time better by tracking the tasks your project consists of, when they will be executed, who is assigned to each task, and the associated costs.

Process Decision Program Chart (PDPC) is a commonly used technique that was designed in order to help prepare the contingency plans. The emphasis of the PDPC is identifying the consequential impact of failure on activity plans as well as creating the appropriate contingency plans in terms of limiting the risks. Planning to make the tree diagrams and/or the process diagrams can be extended by a couple of levels when the PDPC can be applied to the bottom level tasks on those diagrams.

Near field communication (NFC) is a wireless communication technology that allows smartphones and other similar devices to establish the radio communication with each other on the short distance around 10 centimeters (4 inches).
This example was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM using the Computer and Networks Area of ConceptDraw Solution Park and shows the Near field communication (NFC) network.

This sample was created in ConceptDraw DIAGRAM diagramming and vector drawing software using the Computer and Networks solution from Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park.
This sample shows the Hierarchical network topology.
A Hierarchical network topology interconnects multiple groups that are located on the separate layers to form a larger network. Each layer concentrates on the specified functions, this allows to choose the right equipment for the layer.

A network diagram represents the set of computers and network devices and the connections among them. This scheme can be developed for any institution or establishment. To illustrate this concept let’s take for example, a hotel network topology diagram or a school network diagram. These diagrams depict access points, servers, workstations, firewalls and another equipment needed to provide a network.
On this masterpiece drawing one will see a simple scheme a of connecting computers together. Such form of connecting can be applied for a hotel, guest house, bungalow, hut or something else. This diagram shows the images of the real LAN components. So, it represents a physical category of a network construction. It looks similar to a star - so this network configuration is named a star topology. The typical feature of this construction is a center point - usually it is hub, or router. The rays of this star means network connections. Computers, peripherals and other network details are placed on the ends of the star rays.
