How to Create Gantt Chart
To begin managing a new project, you will need to define the individual Tasks that must be completed to deliver it. The default view for a new project in ConceptDraw PROJECT is the Gantt Chart. The left pane of a Gantt chart displays a list of project Tasks. The right pane displays a calendar and timeline of those tasks.

- The first step in planning a new project is to create a list of the different tasks and phases in your project. There are several ways to add tasks to your Gantt Chart. The simplest way it to press the Add button on the toolbar. You can also press the Enter key on your keyboard.
- The Gantt Chart table has columns for all of your project data, like task name, start and finish dates, duration, and completion level. Name the Task, and assign its duration. You can do so by double-clicking on the fields in the left pane of the Gantt chart, and then typing on your keyboard. Or simply drag and drop your tasks in the right pane of the Gantt chart to where you want them.
- You can also easily change a task’s start and finish dates. Either manually enter the data into the table, or drag the edge of the task to lengthen or shrink it in the graphical timeline view.
- Group Tasks into Phases. Use the Indent button create project phases on the Home toolbar to subordinate a Task, thereby making the dominant item into a Phase.
- To establish a relationship between Tasks, select two or more Tasks on the Gantt chart, and then click the Link button to link project tasks on the toolbar.
- The Gantt Chart also allows you to indicate a task’s priority level. Task colors can be used to highlight your tasks to draw attention to certain sections of your project.

Electrical Symbols — Switches and Relays →In electrical engineering, a switch is an electrical component that can break an electrical circuit, interrupting the current or diverting it from one conductor to another. The mechanism of a switch may be operated directly by a human operator to control a circuit (for example, a light switch or a keyboard button), may be operated by a moving object such as a door-operated switch, or may be operated by some sensing element for pressure, temperature or flow. A relay is a switch that is operated by electricity. Switches are made to handle a wide range of voltages and currents; very large switches may be used to isolate high-voltage circuits in electrical substations. 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.
