When to use it

  • Use it when doing any form of planning, to show the actual calendar time spent in each task.
  • Use it when scheduling work for individuals, to control the balance between time spent during normal work hours and overtime work.
  • Use it when planning work for several people, to ensure that those people who must work together are available at the same time.
  • Use it for tracking progress of work against the scheduled activities.
  • Use it when describing a regular process, to show who does what, and when.
  • Use it to communicate the plan to other people.
