Network scheduling methods like Critical Path Method (CPM), Program Evaluation and Review Techniques (PERT), and bar charting are found as less effective in case of linear projects planning, in which the model repetitive activities. Existing literature survey proves that linear scheduling techniques are much suitable to manage linear nature projects like highway, tunnels and high rise building. Linear scheduling is a practical tool, which is utilized successfully for developing and maintaining the construction schedule as well as for seeking alternative schedules to the existing schedule to the existing schedule. Coupling the strong visual advantage (s) and flexibility of this technique with a systematic approach, the balance method (LOB) is used in the repetitive type of activity and save lots of time in the projects. In a building construction most of the activities are repetitive in nature. The present work is focused on LOB method to complete the project in minimum time duration. Live running building project is selected for the research. LOB and CPM both methods are implemented and compared in this building schedule. CPM is widely used in planning and schedule in construction. Result show that in existing method 270 days are requires to complete the project but in CPM requires 248 days and LOB takes 180 days only. The result shows that LOB is more useful in the repetitive type of activity.
