TILOS is the Construction Project Management Software Trusted by 4 out of 5 of the Globe’s Leading Construction Companies.

Are you a Construction Manager on a highway, pipeline, bridge, railway or bridge project?

Do you need a linear CPM based schedule as a requirement for bid submission or to plan, optimize and control your project?

If you’re using a traditional construction scheduling software…

You may find it’s labour intensive and inefficient to create a comprehensive baseline using the multipage GANTT chart outputs of CPM software.

Do any of these symptoms sound familiar?

“I’m having difficulty creating an accurate baseline that reflects the details of ROW”

“I can’t tell what percentage of the project is complete, where”

“Updating progress is so difficult with our software, we’re doing it manually”

“I’d like to reduce our Mass Haulage costs, but I don’t have the data to do so”

“Project planning meetings are confusing”

“Presenting our project progress is a challenge with this volume of data”

It’s probably because your traditional construction project management software isn’t suited for the complexities of a linear construction project.

Traditional construction project management software can be expensive, difficult to use and lack the ability to input and optimize for the challenges of a linear project that impact the performance you’re responsible for controlling.

Often, a linear construction plan consists of a multipage GANTT chart that is:

Simplistic

construction project management softwareMissing vital information such as what work has been done where.

Inaccurate

construction project management softwareAssumes a constant rate of production in fluctuating conditions.

Confusing

 construction project management softwareProvides a lot of data and not a lot of clarity, making it difficult to communicate.

Effective linear project planning is more complicated than it needs to be with traditional construction project management software.

TILOS stands for TIme, LOcation System and has been used since 1999 by the globe’s best project managers to achieve better peace of mind, communication, control and profitability.

Why TILOS works better:

example-construction-project-management-softwareInstead of confusing, incomplete and inaccurate multipage CPM schedules, TILOS generates a one page plan – the time-distance diagram. Based on the highly effective linear scheduling method , time distance diagrams (also known as Time Location Charts, Time Distance Diagrams or March Charts.) connect the physical site and schedule information to the movement of crews and equipment along the time and distance axes.

The result?  The entire project scope in one plan which then displays as a one page graphic.

TILOS linear construction project management software makes planning, executing and controlling linear projects easy.

Really.

construction project management softwareKnow For Sure: Create A Reliable Plan

Decrease the time spent on creating and revising the project plan with traditional construction management software:

  • Stop updating alignment sheets manually to track progress.
  • Use built-in industry specific features to reduce daily tasks: including those that help you calculate and optimize for potentially expensive logistical challenges like
    • Mass Haulage
    • Traffic Control
    • Weather & Condition Changes
    • Changes to ROW access.
  • Easily incorporate move arounds, skips, crossings and other challenges without creating excessive tasks.

construction project management softwareControl Your Data: Integrates With Conventional PM Tools

If your company is already using traditional software tools like Primavera or Microsoft Office, whether due to compliance regulations or status quo, you’ll be pleased to learn you can import and export data to and from TILOS through the open data exchange. 

Additionally, TILOS syncs with TRIMBLE BC so that 3D corridor cut and fill quantities are translated into a workable schedule to measure progress against.

An open data exchange means you can:

  • Integrate with Primavera P6, Microsoft Project and Asta Powerproject.
  • Import data such as crossings, mass haul, elevation or site map.
  • Insert data from spreadsheets.

What construction leaders say about TILOS:

“TILOS is making our lives easier. It helps us to sort out any issues of logic before they become a problem. It also allows us to communicate clearly to all teams involved exactly what we are aiming to do and is a good tool to demonstrate to all stakeholders what we are going to deliver.”

Channi MatharuPlanning and Scheduling Manager for the Thames Tunnel

Awesome piece of software, with many applications on the job.

Stuart ShortlandPlanner, Parsons

Our company is one of North America’s largest pipeline owner companies. Having researched the marketplace for a linear project planning tool, we chose TILOS.  When we have used TILOS on major pipeline projects during construction, it has provided rich construction decision support information.

This information is used to: optimize the construction program with resultant direct dollar savings.

J.S.Planning Manager, USA

For me, TILOS is the ultimate tool to overlook and plan all schedules along a distance. Much better than a bar chart.

A.L.Estimating & Planning, Germany

I have found TILOS to be simple and it is now central to my preparation of tender or cost estimates. Importantly, it allows me to immediately update data when changes occur and provide real-time monitoring of progress.

John Vaughan WilliamsContracts Manager

TILOS transformed our engineer’s attitude to project scheduling from something extra they never had time for to a tool they “owned” and wouldn’t go to a meeting without.

James LyonHDR Inc., USA

I have seen similar software programs earlier, but TILOS is the most flexible and informative I’ve seen up to now.
