Tilos for linear project

  1. 1. Visualize Project Success! Using TILOS for the linear planning and controlling of projects.
  2. 2. Characteristics of a linear project Repetition of each activity along the length of the project The goal is to optimize the productivity rates thus minimizing the total time of crews on the ROW thereby reducing project duration and overall cost Continuous movement of activities and crews along right-of-way Typical projects include: rail, tunnel, highway, pipeline, bridge and high voltage transmission line projects
  3. 3. The graphical representation of linear projects Road project Building project Rail project Pipeline project
  4. 4. TILOS vs. traditional CPM and Gantt charts TILOS connects the geography and constructability issues of a project with the schedule (what is built, when and where) Traditional CPM schedules and network diagrams fail to provide a visual connection between the project plan and the project itself Present your project on a single page using TILOS! 40-page Primavera schedule represented on one page using linear planning

  26. 26. TILOS – professional linear project management solution A tool that connects schedule and site information in a single chart. Site constraints are integrated into the plan from the beginning Is used in any project phase: FEED, Tendering and Estimating, Execution and Claim analysis. A tool that can be used by any participant in the construction process: Owners, Engineers and Construction company. TIME DISTANCE is superior to GANTT CHARTS for linear projects. Rapid creation of repetitive tasks in different locations saves time and effort for detailed planning. Easy clash detection and avoiding errors saves money during construction phase. Powerful progress measurement tool to monitor construction exactly as it was done in the field ( movearounds, work stoppages and out of sequence progress). Flexible integration methods allow usage of TILOS along with other software and also if the project has already started.
  27. 27. What one of our clients is saying "TILOS transformed our engineers' attitude towards project scheduling from something extra they never had time for to a tool they "owned" and wouldn't go to a meeting without.” James Lyon - HDR Inc. in USA
  28. 28. Cityringen project in Kopenhagen, Length: 15.2 km Finish: in 2018 TILOS was used in early design phase to schedule TBM and the work in stations. We got the following remark on TILOS from : “TILOS is being used as the strategic planning tool for the Copenhagen Cityringen Project. Early in the project it was used to assess the impact of different TBM sequences and number of TBM’s on both the overall programme and the interfaces with the individual station construction. As the project has developed the tool has been invaluable in quickly assessing the affects of changes, possible delays and determining suitable mitigation measures, for both the TBM drives and the station constructions. Not only has TILOS been great as an analysis tool, but the easy to understand graphical output provides a simple tool for explaining the planning to all members of the project team.” This from : Steen Nielsen Head of Planning Metroselskabet I/S Metrovej 5 DK - 2300 Copenhagen S More info about project and contracts: http://intl.m.dk/Cityringen-en.aspx
  29. 29. Pipeline project Alberta Clipper, Canada Enbridge Pipelines Inc. operates, in Canada and the U.S., the world’s longest crude oil and liquids pipeline system. These pipeline systems have operated for over 55 years and now comprise approximately 13,500 kilometres (8,500 miles) of pipeline, delivering more than 2 million barrels per day of crude oil and liquids. Alberta Clipper is a crude oil pipeline that will provide service between Hardisty, Alberta, and Superior, Wis. This 1,000mile / 1,607-km pipeline will have an initial capacity of 450,000 barrels per day (bpd), with ultimate capacity of up to 800,000 bpd available. Enbridge Pipelines Inc. used TILOS as their best in class linear scheduling tool for managing the Alberta Clipper Mainline Construction for this immense project in Canada. The software was used in the field, and in the main offices to bring together stakeholders to greatly enhance planning, and reporting making the project a huge success.
