* ABSTRACT
The scheduling problem posed by multi span bridge has the characteristics of problem posed by linear repetitive construction however the repetitive units in this case of bridge may vary greatly in work from one unit to the other. The network methods are not effective to address such problems. When two activities are independent of each other, network techniques are incapable of scheduling the activities logically. Additional artificial constraints are required to schedule the activities which have constant production rate. These methods are not efficient in addressing problems of continuous utilization of resources.
Line of Balance (LOB) is well suited for repetitive activities where different crews performs the activities one after the other; however this is not effective in scheduling multi span bridges where large numbers of activity are dependent on each other. Further, LOB is primarily a technique with emphasis on continuous utilization of resources and therefore is not ideally suited for scheduling bridges where activities and quantum of work varies from one unit to another.

Linear scheduling Method developed primarily for scheduling linear
