In most construction contracts time is important and delays can be costly. It is essential, therefore, to achieve the earliest possible completion of the works. The best known and easiest communicated model for planning and controling the progress of works is the bar chart, in which each job that contributes to the total project is shown as a horizontal bar whose length is proportional to its estimated duration and its position indicates the period within which it is due to take place.
The sequence in which jobs follow one another is less obvious in the diagram. Misronet Bar chart tool has overcome this by adopting the network analysis to the user input and producing a simple bar chart output that can be a useful means of communication between engineers and foremen.

about Construction management and how it is a discipline comprising systematic
approaches to control time, cost and quality of a project based on
recorded research and experience. Though project management must have been
applied in the building of Egypt pyramids centuries ago, but the discipline
of management is relatively new, and origins of modern management can be traced
to the beginning of last century. At present, there is no such thing as A
comprehensive management theory but rather theories about the management.

Q Scheduling Technique
about Q scheduling which is a new planning technique that has evolved after a great deal of
research, in response to the widely recognized failure of the majority of
contractors to fully use CPM
and adopt it as a basic scheduling technique in their projects
The new technique is found to be more realistic as it focuses on cost
optimization for the contractor, continuation of work flow for all employed resources, as well as minimization of idle times for each crew by applying reverse engineering to decide optimal performance rate for each crew.
Q Scheduling is based on the Line Of Balance Technique, with a few additional features that ensures compatibility with the Building industry
Most suitable for small to medium size building projects with a repetitive nature
