What is a Gantt Chart?

On today's podcast - we're going to be answering the question "What is a Gantt Chart?". 

So stay tuned.

You can find the show notes to each episode, links to the information mentioned on the podcast, the social media platforms we're on, and anything else related to the podcast at WarehouseSafetyTips.com.

If you're a seasoned Podcast Listener - this podcast is going to be different from most you listen to.  It's based around exactly what the name implies - Warehouse Safety Tips.  And since the people in that industry are busy - we know time is money, so each episode will be as short and to the point as possible.

And now that all that is out of the way - let's get to the Podcast!

What is a Gantt Chart?

Simply stated, it's a bar graph that allows project managers (As well as other staff members) to see a project from a specific start time to its projected finish.  Those utilizing it can manage workflows and improve upon them for the future.

Created by Henry L. Gantt - the Gantt Chart allows a visual representation of a project.  

Originally created to track the construction of ships - it's been used on everything from the Interstate Highway System to the construction of the Hoover Dam.  

Tools like the Gantt Chart allow us to constantly work towards improved efficiency.  That's Lean Manufacturing.  We'll discuss that more in upcoming episodes.

Yes, we usually share SAFETY Tips - but, keep this in mind.  One of the benefits of a safe facility is continued production.  If you're following the 5S Methodology - then you're focused on improvement.  In order to have improvement - you really need to seek out greater efficiency.  And that's where the Gantt Chart brings everything full circle.  You can monitor the progress of everything - including safety procedures within one or all projects - at a glance.

Any tool that improves safety, productivity, and efficiency has our vote!  

We look forward to seeing you next week for another Warehouse Safety Tips.

Until then, have a great week and STAY SAFE!
