Trying to replicate this Gantt chart

Postby ncant » Mon Jun 03, 2024 10:11 pm

Hello everyone,
I want to replicate some Gantt charts shown in the book “Operating System Concepts” to demonstrate how CPU scheduling algorithms work, like this one:


I tried to replicate it using the pgfgantt package and this is what I got:



bar inline label anchor=west,
bar inline label node/.append style={anchor=west, text=black},
bar/.append style={fill=white!!black,}, 
bar height=.8,]{0}{30}


which results in the following figure:


What I want to do (but am unable to despite reading the package documentation) is the following:

    - remove the top white bar
    - center the text of the respective blocks
    - make sure that the content of the figure does not exceed the allowed area on the page, at the same time keeping the numeric indices I used to define the “length” of each segment
    - have numerical indices, just like in the original figure.

Can someone help me (or in case propose an alternative method) please?

Hi ncant,

welcome to the forum!

How about making it a simple TikZ picture? Just three rectangular nodes and four labels.
