Turbo Chart -
Linear Project Software
What is Turbo-Chart Software?
Turbo-Chart is desktop software (not cloud/browser) that installs to any Windows computer to create elegant Time-Location charts in minutes from your existing project schedule data. Unlike other software such as Tilos, Turbo-Chart is designed to let you continue using your existing scheduling tool (e.g. P6, MS Project, Asta PowerProject, Safran etc). Data exchange is quick, simple (and FREE) and can even be achieved just using copy and paste.
What are Time Location Charts?
Time Location Charts are an alternative form of representing project schedules suited to linear projects where work progresses in a repetitive manner and/or in a continuous linear-direction over the project’s physical location and also where works occur in fixed locations that interface with the linear works. Examples of linear projects include:
- Tunnels, and
- High-Rise Building Construction

Turbo-Chart Features and Benefits
We make integration easy! Your existing scheduling tool (P6, MSP etc) remain the single source of truth.
When you make changes to your schedule (in P6 , MSP etc), re-sync to instantly see the changes on your chart.
Additional charts allow you show more than one view of the same data. E.g. you may show a summary of the overall road project and more detailed charts of bridges/intersections.
DataSets allow you to easily compare scenarios on the same chart. E.g. Compare Planned vs Actual, or baseline vs P80 Risk Adjusted.
Some charts work better laid out differently. E.g. Multi-story building are best with height on the Y axis, and time on the X, but linear projects like railways, tunnels and bridges are usually best with location as the X axis an time on the Y axis. Turbo-Chart lets you choose the orientation and direction of each axis.
Choose between Line, Area, Parallelogram and Triangle basic shapes. Customise colours, fill styles and colours and opacity to create an unlimited number of shapes types. The legend is created automatically but is fully customisable. Filter Shapes displayed per chart
Annotations are additional text and graphics placed anywhere on your chart. Even though we can help you generate a chart from schedule data in seconds, the best charts have additional information on them to keep everyone informed.
As well as text and graphics, we can help you quickly highlight key dates and locations on your chart. Our highlighters can help readers see locations like bridges, stations or levels, or dates like contract milestones, weather periods or the data-date.

What Our Users Say
The smooth and effortless synchronization allows us instantly to demonstrate to a client the changes to a schedule in order to be more productive in front in “C” level meetings
Scott Carrico, PSP
Really excellent user friendly software and it surely saves at-least 1 to 1.5 days work which i use to draw it manually using excel
Senior Planner LTA Metro Train Projects, mixed Infrastructures Projects
Over the past 5 months of using Turbo-Chart I have seen first-hand the more educated decisions that have come directly from using a Location Based Schedule paired with a CPM schedule.
Scott Carrico, PSP
We were regularly updating the schedule as our ideas developed, being able to see those schedule changes reflected instantly on the time location charts saved a lot of time and effort
Estimating Manager, Georgiou Group
We are a new user of Turbo-Chart and one of the reasons is the one-way upload from the CPM schedule to the Linear software. While I also like other linear software, all our projects require CPM scheduling, so we are using Turbo-Chart specifically for optimization of the contract schedule.

I was able to learn the software in less than 3 hours, had a schedule completed in less than a day. The clients were impressed within hours of sending the chart pdf by email. Once we show clients and owners a Location Based Schedule, their understanding of the project increases, and decision making becomes quickly informed which creates a more successful project.
