Linear scheduling methods are planning and scheduling techniquesmostly used in construction and manufacturing industries where repetitiveoperations are abundant.The Line
Of 
Balance Scheduling Technique
(LOBST)
 is a linear scheduling method that allows the balancing of the operations suchthat each activity is continuously and efficiently performed in each consecutiveunit.Some construction projects that involve sets of tasks organized inrepeating sequences are similar to continuous manufacturing processes intheir structure. Examples of such projects include pavement construction,multi
housing projects, and high
rise building construction.In the context of construction projects, the LOB technique offers two mainadvantages:
 
It allows project managers to see, in the middle of a project, whetherthey can meet the schedule if they continue working as they have been.
 
It exposes process bottlenecks, allowing the project manager to focus onthose points responsible for slippage.
