A Skyscraper Remodelling Schedule – displayed in Time-Location-Diagram – with TILOS

Still an unusual sight, but why not? Here we present an example of how to display a Skyscaper-Remodelling-Schedule in a Time-Location Diagram.

The vertical axis represents the levels / floors of the building. Alongside this axis the map of the skyscraper facilitates the connection between activities and level/location of work.

The horizontal axis represents the time axis.

As a result there is a chart, comparable to a standard Gantt view – but enhanced with the location dimension.

The tasks are mainly displayed as ribbons or lines. They represent how the different crafts are moving trough the building. An overlapping of ribbons indicates that different crafts are planned in the same location at the same time.That may be a clash.
The horizontal distance between two neighboring crafts represents the “buffer” between them.

For sure TILOS can add cost and resource information along each axis: Time and distance.

The new coastal Highway in Reunion Island is planned with TILOS

The New Coastal Highway will be about 13km long. The Highlight of this connection of Saint Denis and La Grande Chaloupe is a 5400m viaduct along the coast cliff – a bridge over the water surface. It will carry 2×3 traffic lanes. Two of them will be reserved for light and public transport: Buses, pedestrians and bycicles.
The viaduct is needed because the existing cliff road suffers from rock-falls and floodings caused from tropical storms. It will keep a safe distance to the cliff.

The Viaduct cost about 715 million Euro. Most of the structure will be prefabricated on land and the installed by sea.
Two other packages icluding heavy earth movement and earth works cost about 530 million Euro. In this area TILOS will be used.

The project will be completed in 2018.


Our french partner Projet linéaire is supporting the TILOS usage.

TILOS Task Calculation Part 1: Linear calculation models (Video blog)

This video blog / tutorial is showing some easy linear calculation models, that TILOS Linear Scheduling system uses to estimate task durations.

This is the start of a series of videos regarding TILOS task calculation.

This time:

  • Determining the Work rate = Quantity / Duration
  • Estimating the Duration = Quantity / Work rate
