What the milestone chart really means…
The milestone chart uses icon or symbols to show scheduled milestone event. Take for example, you want to construct a building, the completion of the foundation, first floor and second floor are all important milestones in that project.
Milestone charts are typically listed from the left to the right of the chart as well.
Milestone charts also have time intervals which are divided into hours, days, weeks or months. These are always presented across the top or bottom of the chart.
The milestone chart is also effective in demonstrating the overall schedule to project team members, stakeholders , and top management in the organisation. At a glance, with the milestone chart all the stakeholders can actually look at the chart and understand the entire duration that the project is going to take as well when each of the activities in the project will be carried out as well.
