Location based Scheduling is the main target of TILOS – Time Location Scheduling.
See below a Gantt Diagram structured by Location coming along with the correspondent Location Maps – converted from a Time-Location-Diagram.

On many construction sites in Europe and all over the world TILOS has successfully proved on minor and major construction projects.
The development goes on and Linear project will present TILOS 9 for the first time on the InnoTrans fair in Berlin from September 23 to 26 2014.
The major goal for the version 9 release is: Improving the methods of structuring projects and their visualization.
Task Grouping is displayed in most Gantt chart based systems using headlines and summary tasks. A direct link to the location is not possible. Grouping in TILOS can display coloured vertical ribbons with graphics attached left to the text panel. The location is includes in such charts and this improves the understanding an communication of work execution.

The task boxes can be formatted with text, logos (responsibility) and traffic light indicators similar to the cards in planning tables.
The same project structure now can be visualized also in the time distance diagram by using WBS or category summary tasks. Those are calculated from the task categories or WBS. The time and the distance coordinates of the detailed tasks are summed up to the structure above. This is ideal for displaying top level plans from detailed data set.
The detailed activity data can be imported from Primavera, MS Project and ASTA Powerproject with all the structures included. Only the graphics for the WBS or category nodes have to be assigned as well as company logos for the executing companies.
The new pure location links in TILOS 9 allow to set distance coordinates based on links in a similar way to time coordinates during the reschedule. Planning locations is then much easier and more flexible now.
Example: One driving task in a tasks group (process) can define the distance to work on both: Predecessors and successors.
The full list of all functions of TILOS 9 will be published soon.
