Complex projects, such as bridge construction, require thoughtful planning. Project Management is the discipline of planning and controlling the work of a team to reach a specific goal. Successful Project Management requires a careful consideration of deadlines, budgets, and available resources.

The Gantt chart is a project management tool that shows tasks in terms of their time-to-complete, interdependency, and available resources. Developed by American engineer Henry Gantt, these charts were first employed in shipbuilding, the construction of the Hoover Dam, and the Interstate Highway System.

Today they are used for all manner of project management tasks. Computers have made the Gantt chart simple to create and easy to update.
