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.

In my opinion the Asta solution is unsimilar and not comparible to a "real" time-location diagram and the benefits you can get from a fully integrated graphically tool like TILOS.

Hi Asaf;

You can develop Time Location Chart by using an Microsoft Excel. The only constraint by using this software is Nice Graphical Contents because developing Time Location Chart using Microsoft Chart is based on Excel Chart Development.

Thanks;

Asaf, if you know the basics of creating a time location/space diagram, and if your project is not so complicated, you can use excel. First create your programme in a P6 or MS Project, and use this information to generate the time space diagram in excel. You can always update in P6 and re adjust the time space diagram manually in excel.

However, If your company is engaged largely or continuously involved in horizontal or linear projects, convince your management to invest on a time space diagram software. It is worth it.

Hi Asaf

PowerProject v 12 has a time location option built in - you just switch the display from Task per line to time chainage.
