Gantt charts are a planning and scheduling tool created by Henry Gantt. Designed as a bar chart, a Gantt diagram groups in a single view all sub-elements of a global project. Gantt charts allow to keep an eye on the various activities and phases of a project. The respective deadlines can be compared, and prioritized.
