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.

I’ve read the messages on this subject and followed most of the links but none take me to software for line of balance charts for repetative work i.e. hundreds of student rooms.

Most take me off to what I would call ’Time Chaneage’ charts which look great for linear project work.

Does anyone know of any software for what I’m looking for?

I believe Line of balance is also known as ’Elemental Trend Analysis’.

·         read this somewhere, I can't find link of:

VICO software Control 2009. It works in gantt chart too so you don’t have to walk away from gantt, and it works dynamically so you can make changes in either view. Control 2009 Launching today boasts links to P6 and MSP so you can check and update your work in Control and then export to whichever software your client or management demand. Take a look at Vico Software Control 2009 and check out the quick demo movie which give you a great overview. You can download a 60day free trial period and you can download interactive training guides (ITG’s) which will train you on the basic features to get you started. Go to the Vico Software Website

It is also available in the Asia/Pacific from

My experience is a scheduled and levelled network with resources. The final output of Time chainage is more or less same as Line of Balance.

Data source of Time Chainage is from P3, it seems you are looking for another scheduling tools.
