Abstract

The core idea of this disclosure is to provide an automatic and intelligent system and method to create Gantt chart by entering the input with a flexible format and adding the dependencies among activities, resources using visual diagram. Claim points: A system and method to get the project plan input with a flexible format by using customized diagrams and shapes, and define the relationships among objects by dragging and dropping ; A system and method to create Gantt chart automatically basing on collecting, analyze and dispose user's input; A system and method to auto-updated plan once changes happen.

A system and method of Gantt chart generation automatically and intelligence for large

A system and method of Gantt chart generation automatically and intelligence for large-

Gantt chart is widely used in project management for planning and arranging the project tasks. There are several tools to support Gantt chart creation right now, by using that tools, user can generate the Gantt chart easily if the task items are not too many and the dependencies among resources, tasks are not too complex. Although they can generate the Gantt chart automatically, the precondition is that user input all the activities with their exact durations, predecessors and resources and make the sequence by manual in the fixed format. Then the tools will transform the format to Gantt chart. Therefore, the tools is actually a " Gantt chart transformer" rather than a " Gantt chart automated generator".

The fact it: it is hard for user to create the plan with too many activates (>30 items) and too complex dependencies - user usually lost themselves into making balance for everything: to make a correct sequence for each items; to make sure there is a good usage for all resources; to make sure the whole schedule is as short as possible; to make sure everyday have a full usage... all of these factor make a project manager to spend a lot of time on creating project plan for a medium or large-scale project. Moreover, once there are changes on activities, tasks, resources, and schedule, it will another rush time for a project manager.

How to make the Gantt chart creation automatically indeed? This disclosure will describe a system and method of Gantt chart generation automatically and intelligence for a medium or large-scale project.

The core idea of this disclosure is to provide an automatic and intelligent system and method to create Gantt chart by entering the input with a flexible format and adding the dependencies among activities, resources using visual diagram.
