A DEVICES III. PROJECT MANAGEMENT Task 1: Read information about Gantt chart. Translate the text. A Gantt chart is a horizontal bar chart developed as a production control tool in 1917 by
Henry L. Gantt, an American engineer and social scientist. Frequently used in project
management, a Gantt chart provides a graphical illustration of a schedule that helps to
plan, coordinate, and track specific tasks in a project. Gantt charts may be simple
versions created on graph paper or more complex automated versions created using
project management applications such as Microsoft Project or ExcelA Gantt chart is
constructed with a horizontal axis representing the total time span of the project, broken
down into increments (for example, days, weeks, or months) and a vertical axis
representing the tasks that make up the project (for example, if the project is outfitting
your computer with new software, the major tasks involved might be: conduct research,
choose software, install software). Horizontal bars of varying lengths represent the
sequences, timing, and time span for each task. Using the same example, you would put
"conduct research" at the top of the verticle axis and draw a bar on the graph that
represents the amount of time you expect to spend on the research, and then enter the
other tasks below the first one and representative bars at the points in time when you
expect to undertake them. The bar spans may overlap, as, for example, you may conduct
research and choose software during the same time span. As the project progresses,
secondary bars, arrowheads, or darkened bars may be added to indicate completed tasks,
or the portions of tasks that have been completed. A vertical line is used to represent the
report date. Gantt charts give a clear illustration of project status, but one problem with
them is that they don't indicate task dependencies - you cannot tell how one task falling
behind schedule affects other tasks. The PERT chart, another popular project
management charting method, is designed to do this. Automated Gantt charts store more
information about tasks, such as the inevitably, they diverge from the original plan.
