Modelling and Optimizing Schedules with Line of Balance and Start-Finish Relationship

The use of the Line of Balance Scheduling Method has been increasing, especially on the construction industry companies of Brazil, Finland and Australia. The method addresses to the particularities of construction projects more effectively than the Critical Path Method does. In order to model the schedule, the paper demonstrates the “start-finish” relation and its contributions for the two approaches for the modelling:
