What is a Gantt chart with examples?

A Gantt chart is a type of bar chart that visually communicates a project schedule. It displays the project’s underlying activities (tasks) and events (milestones) against a certain timeframe on a diagram with two axis. The horizontal axis represents the time scale set for the project, whereas the vertical axis shows the activities to be completed through a series of bars.

The position and length of each bar depends on the timeline and duration of its associated task (that is, the start date and end date of the activity in question). Due to this layout, a Gantt chart quickly communicates what work needs to be done and when.
