Default Activity on Arrow and Activity on Node templates
     Visio: Charts & Timelines   


Dear Mark,

Activity on Arrow (AOA, also known as an "I-J") and Activity on Node (AON, also known as "Bubble" network or precedence diagram method PDM) template for Microsoft Visio. It is widely used in the construction industry for planning and scheduling purposes.

Both diagram types are explained very well in Construction Project Management: Planning and Scheduling by Henry Naylor

ISBN 0-8273-5733-8

I believe that at least AON can be created through Microsoft Project. It could be a nice touch to Visio to have these diagram templates.

type?

Visio needs activity-on-arrow network templates and nodes
I'm doing a course with the UK's Open University on project management, and

have been using Visio 2003 quite a bit. In so doing, I think I've found a

whole area of diagrams missing from the templates, namely 'activity-on-arrow

networks'.

These networks are flow charts that are used to show project management

dependencies and time durations, and have a specific set of conventions of

nodes and connector arrows.

The nodes contain text boxes that show an identifier and the earliest and

latest event times, plus in some cases the actual achieved time. The British

convention (BS6046) is to have the node divided into three - a left

hemisphere, and two right quarters. Some other node conventions include a

hemisphere and two quarters arranged vertically, or the node divided into

four diagonally. Finally, the connector arrows are labelled with duration

below, and task label above -the line preferably to be horizontal at the

point of labelling.

I searched online help for ages before giving up and assuming this stuff

didn't exist already - please disabuse me if you can, or comment on the

suggestion.

There's definitly demand for it..

Apparantly it's an old technique, but seen as most UK Software Engineers are
teaching this, Microsoft is loosing out on the students using Visio (We have
it installed but it's clumsy and doesn't suit any of our needs)

If you give me an e-mail address I will request that my lecturer forwards
her notes to you (The notes are password protected and I haven't had prior
clearance to distribute them externally)
