Abstract

The construction industry traditionally uses two dimensional visualisation techniques to analyse project progress. This usually takes the form of an ‘s-curve’, so called because of the characteristic plot shape (anecdotally generated by resource application take-up in many projects). Analysing project progress in this manner provides a ‘single view’ guide to data trends. The building blocks of projects are ‘tasks’. Deeper interpretation of a project might require studying individual s-curves for each task. Indicative pattems can go unrecognised in this mass of unfiltered visual data. ‘Procession’ is an information visualisation software tool. It has been developed to provide a more comprehensive representation of project progress, utilising a three-dimensional data surface. In addition to offering a ‘single view’ navigable data-surface, Procession also intelligently filters and emphasises tasks, according to the significance of their deviant performance parameters.
