Example: Visualize a Task manager schedule in the model

You can use the Project Status Visualization tool to review the task schedules created in Task manager.

In this example, you will first create object groups to define which tasks are shown in the model. The object groups are related to the current Task manager scenario. You will then create object representation settings to define how the tasks are shown in the model. Finally, you will review the task schedule using the Project Status Visualization tool.

  1. Create object groups for tasks:
    1. In Tekla Structures, go to the View tab and click Representation.
    2. Click Object group....
    3. In the Object Group - Representation dialog box, create an object group with the following settings:

    4. Enter a name for the group, for example Completed, in the box next to the Save as button, and then click Save as.
    5. Repeat steps 1c - d to create an object group called Started. Use the following settings:

    6. Repeat steps 1c - d to create an object group called NotStarted. Use the following settings:

    7. Repeat steps 1c- d to create an object group called All. Use the following settings:

    8. Click Close.
  2. Create object representation settings for tasks:
    1. In the Object Representation dialog box, select the object group Completed from the list in the Object group column.
    2. In the Color column, select a color for the object group, for example blue.
    3. In the Transparency column, select a transparency setting for the object group, for example Visible.
    4. Click Add row to add a new row.
    5. Repeat steps 2a – d to define the color and transparency settings for the other object groups (Started, NotStarted, and All).

      For example, you can use the following settings:

      Enter a name for the object representation settings, for example Tasks, and then click Save as.

    6. Click OK.
  3. Review the task schedule using Project Status Visualization:
    1. In Tekla Structures, go to the Manage tab and click Project status.
    2. Select Tasks from the Object representation list.
    3. Click the step buttons to change the Review date and to view the changes in the model.
