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)
