A better option is to transfer the information from the network diagram to a bar chart. Using a bar chart to convey schedule info allows the creator of the schedule to display all the information of the network diagram in a tabular report (i.e. Rows and columns of info) as well as displaying graphics (the bars and timescale) to help reinforce the schedule. Typical information in the bar chart can include: Activity ID and descriptions Timing to complete an activity I the form of durations and start/ finish dates The specific location of an activity when presented along a timescale. This helps ID concurrency between unrelated activities and helps display potential space conflicts before they appear on the construction site. Other information which can be displayed includes: Resource info (i.e. Costs, labor, material, equipment)

The contractor’s Project Team would most likely create the schedule and want to use. See as much information as possible in order to manage the project effectively. Owner’s and upper management within the Contraction Company may only need to see summarized information especially if the bar chart schedules are very long.

What type information might we not want to share with our subcontractors?...

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
