Leveling Gantt

The Leveling Gantt view, shown in Figure 6-8, focuses on task delays. This view provides a graphic representation of delayed tasks while still providing task detail information. The chart portion of the view shows the effects before and after leveling. The default table that appears in the Leveling Gantt view is the Delay table, but you can change the table by using the techniques that are described in the section "Changing a Table," earlier in this chapter. You can use the Delay table to add or remove delay time and see the effects of your changes.

^Note

Leveling is the process of resolving resource conflicts or overallocations by delaying or splitting certain tasks. You read more about resource leveling in Chapter 10.

In this chart, you see the Theme task showing a leveling delay. The bar to the left of this task represents delay time, and the table indicates the number of days that the leveled task is delayed.
