A graphic device that depicts tasks, machines, personnel, or whatever resources are required to accomplish a job on a calendar-oriented grid. Charts may be provided for various managerial levels and responsibilities, but detailed planning occurs at the lowest organizational level. Performance may be monitored and controlled throughout the organization.
An outgrowth of the bar chart technique is the milestone chart. A milestone is an important activity in the sequence of project completion. The most significant activities may be designated major milestones. The primary difference in this concept is the graphic display, since the method and collection of data are the same. The milestone approach offers no intrinsic improvement over the basic Gantt chart but provides a means for focusing resources on critical items.

Milestone Chart: A milestone chart depicts key events along a timescale. A milestone chart traditionally used triangles to depict a specific event. A milestone on a milestone chart Gantt can depict a specific event or a culmination of events.
Milestones on a milestone chart Gantt can be shown in various colors or with markings that indicate status. A milestone chart Gantt is usually used for top level reporting so management does not become bogged down in the minutia of the project or projects.

Gantt chart: A Gantt chart is a graphical representation of the duration of tasks against the progression of time. A Gantt chart is a useful tool for planning and scheduling projects. A Gantt chart is helpful when monitoring a project's progress.
