Time-Location Charts / Time Distance Diagrams to View Primavera® Linear Construction Projects

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

With ScheduleReaderTM a user 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.

As new feature implemented in version 7.0, ScheduleReaderTM fully supports viewing of construction linear projects created using a location based scheduling method in Primavera® P6® through primavera distance time graphs, also referred to as time schedule charts, time distance diagrams or time location charts in a new Linear Scheduling View.

Time-Location Chart in ScheduleReader

Time-Location Chart to View XER, XML & XLS Files

The time-location chart is a special view commonly found in construction schedules in Civil Engineering and Power Engineering & Construction, specifically in linear projects scheduled and managed with the Oracle® Primavera® P6® or other linear planning or location based scheduling software in areas such as:

  • Traffic engineering
  • Highway engineering
  • Railway systems engineering
  • Tunnel Engineering
  • Power line construction

Due to their complexity and magnitude, these linear construction and linear infrastructure projects are commonly managed by the Primavera® linear scheduling software or other location based scheduling software.

Linear Scheduling and Time–distance Diagrams / Time Schedule Charts

A graphical scheduling method focusing on continuous resource utilization in repetitive activities. Commonly referred to as line of balance (LOB), repetitive scheduling method, location based scheduling, time space scheduling method, horizontal and vertical logic scheduling.

LSM is used mainly in the construction industry to schedule resources in repetitive activities commonly found in highway, pipeline, high-rise building and rail construction projects, also called repetitive or linear projects.

Time distance Diagrams / Time Schedule Charts

The time distance chart, or otherwise known as time distance diagram, time chainage, time schedule, distance time graph or construction time chart etc.., is a graphical representation of a time schedule for all types of longitudinal, linear projects.

Activities in time–distance diagrams are displayed both along a time and distance axis according to their relative position and as geometrical shapes showing the occupation of the work site over time such that conflicting access can be detected visually.
