    242 == Basic Gantt == 
     242== Dependency and Duration ==

    244244There is some benefit to very basic Gantt that showed just tasks and their dependencies and the resultant schedule.

    248 Disregarding any resource constraints, this chart shows that circuit board design and firmware development follow schematic design, package design can proceed independently, assembly can't be done until the circuit boards and packaging are ready, and the product can't ship until it's assembled and has firmware.  (Clearly this is a gross simplification and likely not accurate in many ways.)

     250 * circuit board design and firmware development follow schematic design 
     251 * package design can proceed independently 
     252 * assembly can't be done until the circuit boards and packaging are ready 
     253 * the product can't ship until it's assembled and has firmware.   
     254 * the overall project will take 9 calendar days

    250258This requires only that the ticket have some information about estimated effort or duration of the task and simple FS task dependency.

     260== Progress == 
     261 
     262If we also track work on tasks, we can monitor project progress at a glance.
