Filtered Industry Gantt chart

April 6, 2013

One of the better recieved features recently was the addition of the time line to projects and current ship manufacture indicator on the industry jobs page.  They’re good indicators of what’s currently going on and how you’re performing on a specific project.

Recently I found myself wondering on how efficient I was being with some of my BPOs.  Any of you following Blake’s blog will know that we’re heavily into carrier industry and I try to keep my BPO sets in operation at all times but there are patches, either due to logistics, material shortages or just time when they’re not and I wanted to see if this could be displayed in a gantt style chart.  So I set to tweaking the time line to this.  I am very happy with the result.

The filters allow you to set a time frame, activity type, categories, groups and a type name.  Even some various logic in there in case you want to search for items containing {your_search_string} in it’s name.

Be cautious though if running a query that could potentially bring back a lot of results.  The initial search is fast but it can take a while to render the chart.  All the processing is client side so how long it takes depends on your computer power but even my gaming rig with an overclocked i5 took about 2 minutes to render my full personal industry with something close to 20k individual jobs accross my alts.

You can access the filters from the industry jobs section at the top of the page.
