    • George Fragos Greece A Gantt chart is a vital tool for any project manager. It helps you create a schedule for your project and track the status of each task. There are hundreds of tools for creating gantt charts, some far more complex than others. If you have Excel, you can create a project schedule with almost no learning curve by downloading Vertex42's(as fas as I remember) free Gantt Chart Template.

    • tamika lashelle miles United States of America The best way to handle budget is to look at all variables including unforeseen costs at the onset. Looking for this before hand and having option available is useful. It is best to set boundaries and adhere to them within the design and planning stages. Ultimately it will be up to the client to decide if expanding the budget thus a review of the project conditions is needed.

  • Janine Phillips Australia I've worked for many companies where the project has not gone to plan - the time, resources and funds have blown out. However the business has had to continue with the project. The revision provided here outlines many steps that I believe were not taken nor considered at the right stage. This demonstrates the importance of the process and the need for regular assessment during the process.

  • Jones Hanungu Munang'andu Zambia PERT and CPM Project managers frequently face the task of controlling projects that contain unknown and unpredictable factors. When the projects are not complex, bar charts can be used to plan and control project activities. These charts divide the project into discrete activities or tasks and analyze each task individually to indicate weekly manpower requirements. As the work goes forward, progress is charted and estimates are made on the effects of any delays or difficulties encountered during the completion of the project. In the mid-1950s more sophisticated methods of project planning and control were developed. Two systems based on a network portrayal of the activities that make up the project emerged at about the same time. PERT (Program Evaluation and Review Technique) was first used in the development of submarines capable of firing Polaris missiles. CPM (the Critical Path Method) was used to manage the annual maintenance work in an oil and chemical refinery. Many variations and extensions of the two original techniques are now in use, and they have proved particularly valuable for projects requiring the coordinated work of hundreds of separate contractors. The use of project planning and control techniques based on PERT or CPM are now common in all types of civil engineering and construction work, as well as for large developmental projects such as the manufacture of aircraft, missiles, space vehicles, and large mainframe computer systems.
