Trimble TILOS Pipeline Management Software Makes Planning Pipeline Projects Easy.


Are you a Construction or Project Planning Manager on pipeline project? Do you need an accurate, complete and easy to understand plan to optimize and control your project?

You may find it’s difficult to create a comprehensive baseline using the multipage GANTT chart outputs of CPM scheduling software – much less proactively address potential issues or effectively communicate with various stakeholder groups.

If so, you may find yourself thinking:

“I’m having difficulty answering where we’re at with this project”

“I don’t have complete data to back up claims, costs and schedule changes”

“It’s a drain on resources to compile the necessary data”

“I’m not sure my team is on the same page”

“Optimizing the plan and addressing potential challenges is very difficult”

Without TILOS pipeline project management software, planning, executing and controlling your pipeline project is much harder than it needs to be.

Imagine, a pipeline management software that displays the entirety of the project scope on just one page.

With TILOS pipeline management and construction software, you can:

pipeline project management softwareKnow For Sure:

Create A Reliable Plan

Use industry specific features that make daily tasks a lot easier: 

  • Plan around any land and permitting issues before construction begins.
  • You do the planning using industry-specific planning features, while TILOS calculates the timelines and the total time required in one integrated system.

pipeline project management softwareKeep It Simple:

Easily Optimize & Change The Plan

TILOS Pipeline Management Software doesn’t create a huge volume of unnecessary tasks for each change:

  • Equipment move-arounds and skips are a fact of pipeline construction. TILOS enables you to easily modify the plan and automatically updates time and costs.
  • Sequentially start your crews using distance based lags to reduce the total time in construction while preventing one crew catching up to another.
  • Plan around ROW access challenges like weather, permitting, crossings and other variables unique to pipeline project management.

With Stunning One Page Presentations

Show the entire project scope on one Time Distance chart.

  • Multipage GANTT charts are virtually meaningless to field personnel. Show what work has been finished where and plan for the next day’s activities.
  • Communicate effectively to all involved parties: Toggle layers of detail to customize the presentation as appropriate to your audience.

Integrates With Conventional PM Tools

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.

pipeline project management softwareGet It Done:

With increased peace of mind, communication, control, and profitability.

Optimize schedules to avoid project clashes.

Create logic links between activities and then update the plan to identify the critical path and project end date.

Spot issues and solve them before they increase costs.

Optimize continuous production of crews and equipment based on data.

Defend or Support Claims based on data.

Decrease resource allocation associated with maintaining the plan’s accuracy, showing progress and collect critical data.

TILOS pipeline management software is used by industry leaders worldwide.

TILOS pipeline construction and management software has been used globally in pipeline projects, since 1999. 

TRIMBLE TILOS was used on the Alberta Clipper pipeline in Canada, the Keystone pipeline in the USA and the Nabucco pipeline in Europe.

Beware of pipeline construction and management software that isn’t based on the linear scheduling method.

TILOS Pipeline Management Software vs. CPM Schedules:

Traditionally, pipeline project managers use project management software based on the Critical Path Method which produce multi-page GANTT CPM Schedules.

pipeline project management softwareWhile these reports can show how much of the pipeline project is complete, they cannot display what work has been done where as it relates to the ROW.

Routine changes to the plan create excessive tasks that are hard to communicate and require more staff time than is necessary.

pipeline project management softwareThis means scheduling tomorrow’s crews becomes almost impossible for the construction manager, and reporting progress against the baseline is very difficult for the planning manager.

In contrast, TILOS pipeline project management software produces a one page, layered visual of the entirety of the project scope shown between the time axis and the distance axis.

Depending on your audience, you can toggle on and off varying layers of detail to show simply the progress against the ROW or each and every activity.

“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.
