Highway construction software developed by highway construction professionals, for highway construction professionals.

Are you a construction manager on a road or highway project that needs a reliable and comprehensive plan for your road or highway construction project?

You may find it’s difficult to generate, update and communicate the project plan using traditional highway scheduling software.

Using traditional project management scheduling software can often create:

Frustration: It’s difficult to gather enough accurate data to create a baseline you can rely on
Uncertainty: It’s impossible to determine what work has been done where along the right of way.
Confusion: Communicating a multi-page GANTT chart plan to field personnel and stakeholders creates more confusion than clarity. Inefficiencies: Clashes are hard to prevent and equipment move-arounds create a huge volume of unnecessary tasks.
Inaccuracies: Mass haulage and the rate of productivity of crews is hard to calculate accurately.
Missed opportunities: Bids are often rejected.

Trimble TILOS Highway Construction Software Makes Planning Road and Highway Construction Projects Easy.


TILOS highway construction software was originally developed with two of Germany’s prominent road and highway construction companies to provide a complete planning solution for both major highway construction projects and smaller road construction projects.

Using TILOS highway construction software for your road and highway construction project means you will:

Increase efficiency (and profitability):

Creating a road or highway construction plan with TILOS highway construction software is fast & easy. TILOS provides a library of industry specific features that make creating a reliable plan a lot faster:

  • Pre-created task templates can be added to the plan in just a few clicks, then, TILOS highway construction software will automatically calculate costs, resources and schedules for you.
  • Bulk create tasks at different locations along the right of way and reduce planning time by up to 50%.
  • Pre-created task templates include Traffic Control, Weather & Condition Changes, Changes to ROW access, Crossings and more.
  • Sub-projects like bridges and pump stations are fully supported.
  • NEW: Mass Haul Functionality provides planning assistance with the activities for the cut and fill sections. TILOS will help you plan for the quantity of material to move, how far it can economically be moved and which way along the right of way it should be moved, along with the details on resources and costs associated with labour. With Mass Haulage totalling anywhere from 30-80% of the project’s costs, it’s an area worth optimizing!

Proactively solve problems (before construction starts):

With TILOS highway construction software, you can quickly spot and avoid clashes:

  • TILOS makes identifying pitfalls and conflicting processes along the right-of-way (ROW) easy, then activities or bids can then be adjusted to optimize the plan.
  • Equipment move-arounds and skips are a fact of road and highway construction. TILOS enables you to easily modify the plan and timeline and will automatically update the time and costs for you. And, it does so without creating a high volume of unnecessary tasks!

Accelerate Project Schedules (and your reputation):

With TILOS highway construction software, you can easily identify opportunities to increase productivity and speed up the project schedule.

  • TILOS project plans are displayed using Time Distance Diagrams which means you can view the entire scope all in one view.  This connects the project to the plan and it makes it easier to see at a glance areas for improvement.
  • TILOS helps you sequentially start your crews using pre-determined distance based lags to reduce the total time in construction while preventing one crew catching up to another.
  • Proactively plan for continuous production, regardless of delays in access to ROW or other challenges.

Communicate Clearly:

TILOS highway construction software was built to make planning, executing and communicating your road and highway construction project easier.

  • Show the entire project scope on one Time Distance chart.
  • Communicate effectively to all involved parties – toggle layers of detail on and off and customize your presentation to your audience.
  • GANTT charts are an ineffective way to communicate to field personnel. Show your crews what work has been finished where and plan for the next day’s activities.

Land More Bids:

Support your bids with a project plan and schedule stakeholders understand.

  • Land more bids by syncing the project plan to the physical environment, TILOS creates the necessary CPM Schedule required for many bid submissions.
  • TILOS provides all the details required to support your proposed baseline, timeline and budget.

Fluidly Exchange Data:

TILOS Highway construction software exchanges data with the major project planning tools,

  • 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.”

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

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.

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

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.

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.

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