First of all, I have to clarify that this blog post is not(!) about progress bars as we all know well from installing software or from downloading files. But this post is about the visualization of progress as we are used to see for instance in production planning or project management software systems.
I want to demonstrate the difference between a "classic" progress bar and a forecast oriented visualizaton of progress. The second is a new approach that has been currently implemented in our latest Gantt chart application we developed with our NETRONIC Web Application Framework and the feedback from the users was enthusiastic.
