A dependency diagram is a graphical display of all the tasks in a workflow that are required to complete a request. One can use it to create dependencies between tasks, specify the order in which each will be completed, and which tasks need to be completed before others can be released. In the below project dependency diagram, there are several stages of a competitive analysis process: competitive service, facilities, components, and integration. EdrawMax provides a free customizable project dependency diagram template to download and print. As the below flow chart illustrates, each project task like Dynamic Proxy or NonoRall, or MicroKernel depends on others to create an achievable project schedule. It is the dependencies that help one work out the proper flow of the tasks.
