The Gantt Object

The Gantt chart object is commonly used in project management and shows activities, tasks or events displayed against time. It is useful for tracking project schedules, as it is able to break down the activities on a chart and to display several information about these activities and the whole project.

On the left of the chart is a list of the activities that can also be organized in groups and along the top is a time scale. Each bar on the right represents an activity, while its position and length indicates the start date, duration and end date of such activity.


The following image shows a Gantt chart of a project, with its main stages (thin bars), the tasks that need to be done (wide bars), their progress and how they depend on each other. All this is displayed against time, represented by the time scale on top.
