OnePager Mining Project Portfolio Timeline

The Mining Project Portfolio Timeline:

  • Imports multiple mining projects from Primavera P6, Microsoft Project, or Smartsheet into a single timeline
  • Groups swimlanes first based on the project, and then adds a sub-swimlane for the phases of each project
  • Aligns tasks into timelines based on the phase that they belong to (Feasibility, Planning, or Execution)
  • Color-codes tasks based on the phase of each project

This mining project portfolio timeline was built in OnePager, timeline software that works with Primavera P6, Microsoft Project, or Smartsheet.
