With the Personnel Availability Gantt Chart, you will be able to model your actual organization structure based on the typical organization structure and fill Actual Posts with one or more Actual Persons. You will be able to visualize how the actual posts are filled, see which actual persons become available on a certain period of time.

The Personnel Availability Gantt Chart shows Actual Organizations and Actual Posts as rows. Each Actual Post can be filled by an Actual Person. When the Actual Post is filled by an Actual Person, the Fills Post relationship is created. The start and end dates can be defined for the Fills Post relationship. The start and end dates define the time frame for Actual Person filling the Actual Post. The same Actual Person can work in several positions.

To increase the diagram readability, use legends. To learn how to use legends, see Legends chapter.
