An analysis of the use of Linear Scheduling Techniques in the construction industry.

MetadataShow full item record
A construction scheduling technique is presented which is, in many cases, more advantageous, to both the contractor & the owner, than bar charts typically provided by contractors, particularly for projects that are linear in nature or have repetitive activities scheduled in phases (e.g. roads, piping systems, bridge spans, and high rise buildings). The technique is labeled the linear scheduling method because it is most useful in the construction industry for projects that are linear in nature. The technique maps planned or actual works along the length, or stations, of a project versus time. The basic application of this method is described. Examples of practical application are provided, including a comparative analysis based on an actual Florida Department of Transportation construction project. The technique is compared to the more prevalent bar chart technique utilized in such software applications as Primavera Project Planner
