TimeChainage by Peter Milton Planning can be used for Line of Balance programming. It is also great for time chainage charts. See our web site at www.timechainage.co.uk

Hi Pinan

Microsoft Excell is not free but its graphics can create a line of balance picture.

Best regards

Line of balance software has improved massively over the past 5yrs. It now represents a flexible and powerful tool for quickly planning and controlling projects. Most of all, it is far better at identifying risk and opportunity because of the way tasks and locations can be displayed on a single page. This is hard to do on 50 pages of gantt chart print out as we all know.

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 Go Vico!

Hi Pinian

Graphisoft Flowline software is a pure line of balance system. It is very simple and graphically stunning. 3000 activities displayed on 1 A3 sheet.

A similar effect can be achieved in PowerProject using "Task Per Line" mode and linking between trades vertically through the levels.

Although Tilos software is intended for "Time Chain" civils work it is easily adapted to a high rise line of balance programme.

Good hunting and best regards
