A typical load chart is illustrated in figure above. This chart indicateds that:
                    1.     Painting work centre is completely loaded for the entire week
                    2.     Metal Works, Meachanical and Electronics work centres will be available on
                            Friday.
                    3.     The white colour box indicates that the work centre will be available.
                    4.     The yellow coloue box indicates that the work centre is working on certain job,
                            for example, painting work centre is working on the job349 on Tuesday and
                            Wednesday.
                    5.     The green box indicates that the centre is not available because is busy doing

            Gantt Load Chart have some major limitations:

For one, it does not account for production availability such as unexpected breakdowns or human error that require reworking a job..

The chart must also be updated regularly for account for new jobs and revise time estimates.
