Sample text

Line of balance The main concept of the line of balance technique is the work continuity of labour gangs, which work with rhythmic production and with no wastes willingly planned into the programme. This planning method fits much more closely to modern construction philosophy. The line of balance technique is very suitable for repetitive projects like residential buildings; however, it may be adapted for non-repetitive projects as well. Unlike a barchart, which shows the duration of a particular activity, the line of balance chart shows the rate at which the work activity or group of activities have to be undertaken to stay on programme, and it shows the relationship of one activity or group of activities to the subsequent group.

The main advantages of this technique are its graphical presentation and the fact that it is easy to understand. 6 is a sample line of balance chart for a residential development of 20 houses. 4 Time-scaled logic-linked programme. 5 Activities on the critical path. 6 A line of balance chart. 38 Programmes and record keeping example expressed as working weeks, while the ‘y’ axis is the number of houses. Time chainage For certain types of projects the time chainage technique can supply a clearer, more easily understood picture of the plan than the traditional barchart because it has a more graphical structure.

The critical path is the longest activity path from the start of the project to its completion. Activities on the critical path have no float; conversely, an activity not on the critical path will have float. Float is the amount of time an activity can be delayed without it becoming a critical path activity. Any activity on the critical path that experiences a delay will consequently delay the project completion date. The calculations necessary to determine activity start and finish dates, together with float and the identification of the critical path, are very simple arithmetic.
