Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

Check out Turbo-Chart, it can produce such charts from your P6 schedules quite easily.

Time Location (or Time Chainage or Line of Balance) charts are very good for planning and presenting projects that involve linear, repetitive work such as roads, bridges, pipelines, tunnels etc.
I have produced a software package that produces time chainage charts by inputting location details and progress rates. Starting dates are dictated by logic and constraint dates (like usual bar chart project management software). Holidays are fully accounted for. Actual progress can also be shown with full history kept. The chart can then be formatted, viewed, printed and saved as a graphic file.
Anyone wanting more information, please contact me.

I am a big fan of line of balance programming. It is ideal for repetitive works, such as house construction or multi storey floor cycles. It is also similar to time chainage programming which is used on linear projects such as pipelines and raods.
