Miss O’Callaghan talked about Gantt charts in an earlier lecture. I felt these are not accessible to me therefore I decided to include a schedule table in my proposal. I found two websites that describes Gantt charts and fishbone diagrams clearly. Hence I think I may be able to use one for the project by creating a simple tactile Chart similar to my explorations for mind maps.
I looked at project management tools to see if I can come up with a better way of organizing my schedule that is applicable to me. I needed something tactile as a process to work with to breakdown my project into its specification, milestones, key dates and target aims and objective points.
The options included:
· Fishbone diagram
· Critical Path analysis flow diagram
· Gantt Chart
Looking at the Fishbone and Gantt Charts:
The Fishbone option is used as a fault detection tool and to improve process. Ideal to help gather and organize factors throughout the workflow process also known as “Cause and Effect” Diagrams. As it is shaped like a fishbone I can relate to the shape and function of the diagram. The Bones are the primary elements followed by the secondary elements or factors and the spine to keep it all together. A good way to map out all the key points for the project.
key milestones to date:
