Precedence Relations in Gantt Charts

A Gantt Chart can be used to show precedence in programs such as MS Project and Open Project using 'predecessors'. Predecessors basically say what has to occur before another task can occur. In the example below for example the task in line number 4 (Determine actual needs) has a predecessor of the task in line number 3 (Determine feasiblity). This means that task number 4 is dependent on the completion of task number 3.
