Schedule Chart

        Gantt Schedule Chart focuses on the activity sequence and timing for various components of a job. It can also be used to monitor the actual progress of a job in relation to the plan.

        A bar is used to represent subtasks within the total job.The location of each bar indicates the time at which each subtask is scheduled to be performed.Normally, the planned production hours indicated at the top of the bar.The chart can be marked to indicate actual progress of the job. The chart gives a graphic overview of the job's status, suggesting where corrective action may be desired. One example of Gantt Schedule Chart is shown below:
