Are you an executive who needs real time schedule status displayed graphically? Though you may be at some distance from the activities, computer networks can show you the project's status at electronic speeds. While it does not create or modify the information, GANTT2 allows you to examine that status. GANTT2 is a fully functional program designed to make Gantt charts from lists of dates and times. It can also be used with a project management program such as SCHEDULE for planning and tracking. Accompanying the GANTT2 package is an educational version of SCHEDULE and a starter set of batch and command files. GANTT2 (#2472) was designed for the hard disk personal computer. Personal computer users working with floppy drives can achieve the same results with GANTT CHARTING (#1306).
This describes the changes from GANTT version 1.3 to 2.0 GANTT2 is a complete rewrite although it maintains compatibility wherever possible. It is designed for use with hard disk systems. Some of the new features are: - On line documentation and improved help. - Mouse support and SAA compliance. - Background processing for better responsiveness. - Planned and actual displays with the "BookIt" function. - Accumulative Planned vs. Actual job completion display. - Future availability in German and Spanish (if there is a demand). If you are using GANTT version 1.x you may notice some differences using GANTT 2.x. You may also want to keep using version 1.3 if you have requirements for use with a diskette only system. 1. Additional storage is required for the program and data. 256K is now required. Disk storage has also increased. 2. The Resource Activities frame F5 has been eliminated. Lack of use and the fact that the content was difficult to explain was the reason. 3. The ACTIVITIES TOT, SUB, CLR, CLS, commands have been eliminated. Lack of use was the reason. 4. The GANTT2 program now consists of three files rather than one. GANTT2.EXE, GANTT2.PIC, and GANTT2.MSG make up the program. This change allows the program to support a variety of languages by customizing the picture and message files. 5. Time starts with year 50 and ends with year 49. This allows projects to span across year 2000 (start in 1950 and end in 2049) while using two characters to indicate the year. If you had projects starting before year 1950 and ending after 1950 they will no longer display properly as they will be seen as starting in 20xx and ending in 19xx. 6. If you had multiple jobs with the same name in the project.PRT file the last one will now be displayed rather than the first. If this is a problem rename your "project.PRT" file to "project.REF" so you can select the duplicate names independently. 7. If there are multiple tasks with the same name in a job the tasks will all be displayed on the same line rather than on separate lines. Version 2.x of GANTT supports multiple independent time spans on a single line with JOB displays. 8. The backslash "\" can no longer be used as a job separator character. The ASCII 2 (Smiley) and ASCII 12 (Eject) can still be used. The following is an additional list of differences between GANTT version 1.x and 2.x. These differences are compatible with any existing files or configurations you may be using currently. 1. Disk paths can be used with the command and the project name on the DOS command line. a. GANTT.EXE, GANTT.PIC, and GANTT.MSG always stay together and are assumed to be in the same directory. b. The project.PRT, project.REF, project.GKB, and project.GPT files are assumed to be in the same directory but that directory can be different from the directory with the program. 2. "project.REF" is a new optional file. It is in the same format as the "project.PRT" file and can be used interchangeable in most cases. If both files exist the .REF file is considered to be the reference and the .PRT file is the current status. Double lines will be displayed for each item that is contained in both files. The order of the display is determined by the .REF file sequence. This allows you to display planned vs. actual, insert additional formatting lines and notes, or to manually arrange the order of the job displays.
