The most common format for a project schedule in the construction industry is the Gantt chart, or bar chart, named for its creator, mechanical engineer and management consultant Henry Gantt. This schedule in graphical form helps project managers and crews visualize timelines and interconnectedness for a project’s scopes and corresponding tasks. You can create it manually or with a computer program, but in either case you do so based on project-specific information.
Before creating a Gantt chart, you must develop the supporting information in the form of a work breakdown structure (WBS) and a network diagram. More detailed information is currently available in Ukrainian or Russian languages only.
