What is it?

LOBTracker imports your project information from Primavera P6 or Microsoft Project to create Line of Balance charts.

What is Line of Balance?

Line of Balance  is a method of showing the repetitive work that may exist in a project as a single line on a graph. Unlike a Bar Chart, which shows the duration of a particular activity, a LOB Chart shows the rate at which the work that makes up all of the activities has to be undertaken to stay on schedule, as well as the relationship of one trade or process to the subsequent trade or process is defined by the space between the lines.

Line of balance charts are used to show the usage of trades and resources in projects that are planned over different areas, floors or rooms. They are particularly useful for projects involving the housebuilding, commercial building and high-rise construction industries.
