A milestone is used to represent groups of activities or significant events or commitments in the project. A milestone chart shows a group of milestones in an organized way similar to a Gantt chart with one milestone per line vertically with a description on the left and the milestone located horizontally along a time scale showing when it occurs. Milestones differ from the bars in a Gantt chart in that they show only a single date and are usually depicted as a triangle instead of a bar (see Figure 5-12). Milestones can be shown in various colors depicting the status of the milestone. Milestones can also appear on Gantt charts; project management software supports the placement of milestones on Gantt charts and other project reports and displays generated by the software.
