THE EASIEST AND FASTEST WAY TO CREATE TIME LOCATION CHARTS FOR LINEAR PROJECTS
Turbo Chart is a powerful, user-friendly software for managing linear type infrastructure/construction projects. An affordable and powerful tool contains all tracking and visualization features you need, provides enhanced visualization, enables quick production of Time Location Charts and allows progress tracking and production of intelligent and analytical reports.
Turbo Chart focuses on producing Time Location charts as easily as possible by working alongside your scheduling tools and without complicated features, making Turbo Chart quicker to learn and easier to use!

A time–distance chart is generally a diagram with one axis representing time and the other axis distance. The advantage of a time–distance diagram is that it nicely shows all visible activities along the construction site on a single diagram. In project management, a time–distance diagram (other names: Time-chainage diagram, Time–distance chart, Time-chainage chart, Time–location diagram, Time-location chart, March chart, Location–time chart, Orthogonal Diagram, Line of balance chart, Linear Schedule or Horse Blanket Diagram), is a method of graphically presenting a time schedule for all types of longitudinal projects such as pipeline, rail, bridge, tunnel, road, and transmission line construction.

The Time Location diagram shows both the optimal sequence of operations at the same location, but also which operations take place at the same time in other locations. Conflicts become visible through overlapping lines and areas.
Traditional CPM schedules and network diagrams are quite detailed, but they fail to provide a visual connection between the Project plan and the Project itself. By the addition of location information, Turbo Chart adds an extra dimension to your schedule, giving you more information than an equivalent Gantt chart. It easily converts a multi-page schedule in a more compact and readable form that can be used for effective tracking the project.
Turbo Chart is integrated with Primavera P6 software to enable schedule data to be transferred easily into Turbo Chart. Users do not have to create any data in Turbo Chart to avoid any double entry. Turbo Chart generates Time Location Charts quickly from existing Primavera P6 schedules allowing Turbo Chart to be used as an additional reporting tool alongside the Gantt chart generated by Primavera P6 or MSP.
Turbo Chart can be applied to vertical building projects (High-rise building Project) just as easily as linear Infrastructure project schedules. By using the relative levels between floors as the location start and end values, and adding a discipline code, a time location chart representing the varying trades progressing across the vertical floors can be easily visualized from existing project schedules.
