Here are some real-life examples of Time Location Charts. They are from different types of projects, including:
- A Vertical High Rise
- A Fibre Optic Network
- A Segmental Bridge
Real-Life Examples of Time Location Charts
Time Location Chart Example: Vertical High Rise
Here we’re looking at a high rise. In this case, the time is on the horizontal axis a bit like a traditional Gantt chart, the vertical axis represents the physical areas of the high rise building. A summary of the whole project is represented on one page.
The red boxes are the critical path of the project.
Example: Fibre-Optic Network
About 10 years after my first fibre-optic network I had the opportunity to work on a very similar project, thousands of kilometers of fibre optic rollout. This time I was armed with a lot more knowledge of how to present this type of information and how to generate charts. Another successful outcome here with thousands of kilometers and tasks presented on a single page.
Example: Segmental Bridge
A simple example here of a bridge to show it’s not just the traditional highway/railway/tunnel type of projects these charts can be used on.
Again, we can easily see the critical path on this project.
Example: Highway Project
Here’s an example Time Location Chart for a highway project, with the critical path shown in red.
Why Use Time Location Charts?
The real-life Time Location Chart examples above show hundreds or even thousands of tasks that would traditionally have been 10-100 pages of Gantt chart. And they do it on a single page.
You can turn your Gantt Charts into Time Location Charts, too. You can even learn how to do it for free with our free video course!
