I built an org chart by just including a field 'supervisor' and made it reference the employee id in the same table

you could have a field 'precedent' for each task, pointing to the unique identifier of the task on which it depends. self-creating chain.

unless you have two unrelated precedents to our task, in which case you'll need a linking table, and be creating two chains backwards from said task.
