Open XER Schedules and View Linear Projects through Time-Location Charts/Diagrams

Designed to replace the flow of communicating project information as PDF, this XER file reader offers dynamic way to view project plans and gives project stakeholders detailed insights of all project activities even if they don’t have an Oracle® Primavera® P6® license. 

With ScheduleReaderTM they can quickly access to details from many aspects of the project including WBS (Work Breakdown Structure), Activities, Resource assignments, Roles, OBS (Organizational Breakdown Structure) and more.

Linear Scheduling View in ScheduleReader

In project management, these charts are a method of graphically presenting a time schedule for all types of longitudinal, linear construction projects such as pipeline construction, rail construction, bridge construction, tunnel construction, road construction and similar linear infrastructure projects.

Activities in time–distance diagrams are displayed both along a time axis and along a distance axis according to their relative linear position. This allows showing not only the location of the activity but also the direction of progress and the progress rate. 

Activities can also be presented as geometrical shapes showing the occupation of the work site over time such that conflicting access can be detected visually.

The advantage of a time–distance diagram is that it nicely shows all visible activities along the construction site on a single diagram.
