Time-Scaled Logic Diagram (TSLD)

This TSLD, created in OnePager Pro, gives users an overview of the critical path for a project, but does so in a more compact timeline layout instead of a traditional Gantt chart which often takes up more space.

OnePager TSLD Features

The time-scaled logic diagram features:

  • Automatically coloring tasks red when they are on the critical path.
  • Display of dependencies, filtered so that only predecessors and successors that are on the critcal path are displayed.
  • Grouping of tasks into swimlanes based on the phase of the project to which they belong.
  • Placement of multiple tasks into the same row, when possible, to save on space, compared to a traditional Gantt chart.
  • Federal fiscal year displayed on the time axis instead of calendar year.

This TSLD was created using OnePager Pro, a project reporting tool that works with Microsoft Project.

Instructions

To build a fire incident response timeline like the example above, follow these instructions:

  1. Download the two sample files listed above. There is one Microsoft Project file and one OnePager template file. Save both files to your desktop or to your downloads folder.

  2. Open the Microsoft Project file.

  3. Once Microsoft Project is open, go to Add-Ins and click the OnePager Pro button.

  4. When the start screen appears click NEW to build a new chart.

  5. With the Microsoft Project file ready for import, we need to change OnePager's default template to the one downloaded above. To do this, click on Change, and then BROWSE FILES to the OnePager template (*.tat) file. This OnePager template contains all of the data-driven formatting (colors, layout, etc.) that give this TSLD its specific look.

  6. With the Project file ready and the custom OnePager template selected, click on Create New Chart to build your TSLD. It should closely match the example at the top of this article.
