THE BLOB CHART

A new way to chart allocation of resources over time is simple, yet visually effective. It is possible to note milestones, periods of slack, critical paths, and the interrelationships of tasks in this type of chart, and it can be converted to a Gantt chart or PERT network. The development of a blob chart is illustrated by a student project in engineering systems design whose purpose was to find an optimal solution to the problem of increasing the mobility of the elderly in a socioeconomically and politically feasible manner.
