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.
This video tutorial shows how to transfer an existing project schedule created in Primavera P6 to a Time Location Diagram in TILOS. The TILOS Exchange Software is used. 20min to invest for a better understanding of the concept and the how to do.
This is a Tutorial Video for general understanding of the benefits of time-location diagrams for planning infrastructure construction projects.
The major planning and process problems of such projects are also visualized.
All people involved in infrastructure construction, who want to get first information about planning in Time-Location-Diagrams: Estimators, planning engineers, project schedulers, controllers, civil engineers, students, teachers.
Linear project GmbH releases the ‘beta’ version of its linear scheduling software TILOS 8. It is a major step in the development of the software providing the foundation for a wider usage of TILOS in the future: It can handle much bigger projects and works faster. It allows merging of data from different planning phases or partners using the simple drag & drop function to consolidate sub-projects into one central file. The improved planning features of TILOS enable its usage as an analysis and visualization tool for those who still plan with Primavera or Microsoft Project Gantt Charts.
One of the most interesting aspects of TILOS 8 is the new Google Earth add-on component. Just some clicks are required to visualize your project on the globe.
The steps are:
Import the paths and placemarks from Google Earth or a spreadsheet
Load the schedule from TILOS
Set the filters and the display criteria of what you would like to view.
The image above is showing the situation on Feb 09, 2013. The autoplay function simulates the ongoing construction process in user defined steps. The Screen is updatedevery ten seconds to show the new status on the next step. Linear tasks are displayed as lines in different colors while those being executed in one place (buildings) are displayed as symbols. The animated map provides a rough roadmap of the execution of the project for all parties.

If you would like to test the new TILOS Version 8 with Google Earth Integration, you may sign-up and register for our global test program. Be one of the first to try the new functions with TILOS8. Send an email to BetaTest@TILOS.org.
We intend to release the international version of TILOS 8 (English) at the end of January 2013.
See how to create a second Time-distance-diagram, that contains a different project. That method can be used either for showing separate distance areas in one project but also to display different stages of the same project: Displaying the main schedule and a scenario schedule on one page.

They provide an excellent and fast overview on the TILOS user interface and the way of working with time schedules along the distance axis. They are not only useful for interested people trying to get a first contact of the Software, but also for new users – seeing how to start projects and do the things in the right way.
