Time Chainage Software
While there is little material available to pinpoint specific and exact historical usage, the term “Time Chainage” offers a clue that the technique is not a modern method, but has quite possibly existed for some time – certainly well before computer software was readily available to manage railways construction projects, and when Time Chainage diagrams and charts may have been manually drawn by hand.

Time Chainage Diagram Software
Software to produce Time Chainage diagrams has closely followed the development of project scheduling tools. During the early to mid 2000’s, construction project scheduling was dominated by a tool Called Primavera P3, and tools that could represent scheduling data from P3 into a Time Chainage diagram were already available.
Software that produces Time Chainage diagrams and charts can be assessed on two features:
- An analytical tool used to inspect and assess the project schedule – the Diagram
- A communication tool to present the project schedule – the Chart
