Gantt charts for planning and scheduling projects

ConceptDraw PROJECT is simple project scheduling software which provide full range of professional project reports with project statuses and resorces usage. Here we explain very common thing - how project gantt charts works in ConceptDraw PROJECT scheduling software.

A Gantt chart is a graphical representation of task segments within a given time scale. The Gantt chart helps project managers in planning and monitoring project development or resource allocation. The left hand column in a Gantt chart is a list of all the tasks that pertain to the project at hand. The horizontal axis is a time scale that is expressed either in absolute or relative time.

In a Gantt chart, each task takes up one row with dates running across the horizontal axis in increments of days, weeks or months. The bars in the Gantt chart visually show the start and end dates of each task in a project. Tasks may run sequentially, in parallel or overlap each other. Each tasks indicate resources assigned to tasks. This is common approach of how every simple project scheduling software operates with tasks.

Schedule projects using a Gantt chart:
  • Assess time characteristics to a project.
  • Show the task order.
  • Define resources involved.
  • Display links between scheduled tasks.
Plan projects using a Gantt chart:
  • Monitor project completion.
  • Display results of changes made to task activities.
  • Show links and relationships between scheduled tasks.

Electrical Symbols — Terminals and Connectors →

An electrical connector, is an electro-mechanical device used to join electrical terminations and create an electrical circuit. Electrical connectors consist of plugs (male-ended) and jacks (female-ended). The connection may be temporary, as for portable equipment, require a tool for assembly and removal, or serve as a permanent electrical joint between two wires or devices. 26 libraries of the Electrical Engineering Solution of ConceptDraw DIAGRAM make your electrical diagramming simple, efficient, and effective. You can simply and quickly drop the ready-to-use objects from libraries into your document to create the electrical diagram.Electrical Symbols — Terminals and Connectors
