How to prepare a Primavera Schedule for Exporting to TILOS Time Location System

Following a description of the most basic preparations on a Primavera Schedule, when you intend to transfer this Schedule to TILOS and display it in a Time-Location-Diagram:

Promavera To TILOS

A. Additional Data Fields

Some additional information for the activities has to be edited in the Primavera project:

  1. Location information
    Each activity needs to have a Start Location and End Location value. Those are needed to display the activity along the location axis and this is displaying the working direction too.
    Preparation: Create User Defined Fields (Text) named StartLocation and EndLocation and insert the corresponding values.
  2. Display information (Colors and shapes)
    In the Time-Location diagram a task cannot only be displayed in one fixed way: They can have different shapes (e.g. lines, rectangles, parallelograms), linestyles and color. Those graphical characteristics are in TILOS controlled by the object “template”.
    Preparation: Create a User Defined Field (Text) named TilosTemplate and insert for each activity a value (e.g.”pipe laying” or “concrete work”): All activities that should look the same in TILOS get the same value.

B. Activity Filter

Preparation: Create a Filter that selects all the activities that you want to transfer. You may create another User Defined Field (Text) named TilosExport and set a value when the Activity should be exported.

Think about Structures, Summaries and Granularity:
Is the Time-Location diagram showing all details or is there a different Granularity? E.G. Some Buildings/construction elements can be displayed by the Summary activity only. In this case Summary/WBS activities or level of effort activities has to be created.
