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.
