Plan in 5 Dimensions
With Trimble TILOS you can plan and manage your projects more effectively. Linear construction and maintenance projects present unique challenges, because the work is not performed in a single location. TILOS software merges both the location and the schedule dimension into one combined time and distance graphical view that changes dynamically as conditions change.
By incorporating design details, construction challenges and the project schedule into one view, contractors, owners and civil engineers can plan and manage linear projects more effectively.
Multidisciplinary BIM modelling of the Maland rail project in Sweden provides better project collaboration and results. Geographically spread design engineers in Gävle, Malmö and Sundsvall are collaboratively designing in Novapoint sharing a joint Quadri model for road, rail, terrain and water/sewer.
The TaaLa road project in Finland – a major upgrade of a 28 kilometres Highway 6 stretch – using a four operators' alliance model and two different design systems – puts the data model functionalities on a real test.
"Through the intelligent coupling of tasks and the integration of machinery capacity data and expenses, some construction sites – right in the bidding phase – can be quickly simulated and different scenarios can be created,” states Stephan Rieder. “In this sense, the planners optimize both the construction duration and the expense planning. That’s why commissioned planners are required to use TILOS for their construction planning,”
