Following the definition of the quantified bar chart, the template is introduced as the next representation level of the Visual Scheduling and Management System. A template includes a quantified bar chart and alphanumeric data and has special provisions for aggregating the discrete tasks and for monitoring the project.

    The folded-up task is defined in Chapter 6, as part of the hierarchical structure of the Visual Scheduling and Management System.Google Scholar

    The folded-up task that is described in the last row of the template in Fig. 4.1 is not homogeneous, since it aggregates tasks of different constituencies. However, the total cost and the personpower are meaningful for the folded-up task. The constituency of the folded-up task will be discussed in Chapter 6.Google Scholar

    The microtemplate of Fig. 6.3 displays the detailed schedule for making the formwork included in the control template of Fig. 4.7. An explanation can be given on why the completion of the formwork did not proceed according to the plan. The actual execution was closer to the detailed quantified bars of the microtemplate. Assuming that the project planner had worked with the data at the microtemplate, he made an effort to shorten the project by arbitrarily shortening the duration of the formwork. Apparently that was ambitious to achieve.Google Scholar
