Easy Gantt moves your project planning forth to excellence

With Easy Gantt for EasyProject.com, you gain a powerful tool providing you with a graphical overview (bar chart) and schedule of all tasks (issues).

This is a chart with rectangular bars indicating the work elements and dependencies of the project. The length of each bar is proportional to the time value necessary for each task on the work breakdown structure (WBS). You can compare two or more task durations very easily on the Gantt chart. The final product illustrates the schedule of a project. Easy Gantt is fully compliant with IPMA & PMI Project Management methodology standards. For project managers and resource schedulers, the benefits of a Gantt chart include the ability to sequence events and reduce the potential for overburdening team members.

Why is Easy Gantt important

Easy Gantt is important because everything that forms the project's internal structure is shown in there. Moreover, it displays the dependencies of various tasks (issues) within the project. Teams can use Gantt chart to replace meetings and enhance other status updates. Simply clarifying chart positions provides a simple, visual method to help team members understand progress on tasks and entire projects. Besides that, Easy Gantt gives working teams the capability to focus work at the front, the tail or evenly throughout the project timeline. No matter which one of these tactics you like to pursue, all team members will find Easy Gantt charts meaningful as they plug their own work habits into the overall project schedule.

The path of creating a Gantt chart to your liking begins by defining and listing the desirable activities (tasks, issues). Then customize your chart with specific columns, timeline units (days, weeks, months), filters etc. Then list which items depend on others and what activities take place when. For each activity, list how many man-hours it will require (estimated time) and who is responsible (assignee). Lastly, determine the throughput time (start date, due date). This technique's primary advantage is its good graphical overview that is easy to understand for nearly all project participants and stakeholders.
