When does the project actually get over? What is the default calendar? What is a “Distance Gantt Chart” How many activities this project has? What are the starting and finishing coordinates for “ Haul & String Stack 2” activity? What is the planned work rate for this activity? What si the progress of “Clear and Fences” activity? How many hours an Excavator will be required for this activity? What is the report date? When was baseline created? How is the time scale defined? Get the table of height above sea level profile. 13. 10.5 mile per day Subbase 1 mile per day Base 1 mile per day Paving 3 miles per day Signage & Striping 5 miles per day . 3. 11. At what distance micro tunnel is required? Exercise 5 Create a linear schedule for the construction of a 15-mile-long highway with the following activities and production rates.         Survey & Layout 3 miles per day Survey and Layout 3 miles per day Clear & Grub 0. 12.75 mile per day Earthwork 0. 5. 9. 4. 2. Have a time buffer of not less than 2 days and a space buffer of not closer than half a mile.

Define distance axis vertical with descending scale 8. Use template Tilos US 2.Challenges in this exercise: 1. Time axis is horizontal and distance axis is vertical. 3. End date : Jun last week. create a new view. Assign master cells as appropriate . 5. Start distance 0 miles and End distance: 15 miles 3. How to create a schedule: 1. From the navigation pane. If clashing. Calculate activity durations. Distance units are in miles and feet. 4. call it client view 7. Open client view and a. then move the activities forward suitably 6. Start a new project with basic data: Start date: April first week. Define time axis horizontal with month and dates b. Create activities as mentioned. Distance axis is descending. 2.

Create a baseline and record progress Part 1: Creating a schedule by importing tasks . Establish the relationships between the activities. Load the resources to the activities and produce the resource loading analysis graphs.Exercise 6 Schedule for a pipeline installation is provided in the excel sheet. The basic attributes of this project are:     Start date: 1/3/2010 End date: 27/7/2010 Start distance: -200 m End distance: 4200 m Challenges for this exercise:     Import the schedule from given excel file.

Open the excel sheet and observe the task and linking data. End Date. The contract values are: Top soil stripping Soil removal Soil Installation Euro 1. Re-schedule the project Part 2: Resource loading and analytics The schedule previously created will now be resource loaded. Edit the profile for appropriate order of columns d. Quantity. After import. Go to FileImport a. Select Profile “New” c.

Change the report date from the General Tab of the main project. Select task – Top Soil Stripping. Follow the dialog to get the report.03. Select each of the tasks in the project and assign resources as mentioned in the tables above. Go to Chart Definition and add one more : Time Histogram c. Actual progress field to =2700 m. 3. Plotting Resource cost data graphs and other analytics a. Select the bar chart created earlier b. Set start date as: 17.2010. Add a line to the diagram and follow the dialog 4. 5. 6. With the right mouse click choose. 3. Add a new baseline and set the appropriate name to the baseline. Exercise 7 In this exercise you will have to find (discover) how to:  Save a Task as a template? .Insert Resource Bar d. The task will get split into performed and non-performed part.35/unit of work How to do this exercise (Part 2: Resource Loading and Analytics) 1.2010. Add the legends as appropriate Part 3: Creating Baseline and recording progress How to do this exercise (Part 3: Base lines and progress recording) 1. select the baseline tab.

Go to the tab “Resource bar Chart” and click on “Generate Report Lines” e.

(There will be 4 activities and each one will be 1 day: Cleaning Substrate. Touch down zones (two thick lines on both the sides of runway) 3. Mangalore runway (shown in the picture) needs fresh markings and contract for this has been released. The basic types of these markings are as follows: 1. They are extremely important for the pilots for takeoffs and landings. Airport authorities have asked for the number of working days’ you would require with each day with only 3 hours at night. Threshold (stripes at the end of runway) 2. The Physical picture of this runway is shown here: (Code 3 runway) Constant wear and tear erodes these markings. Since the operations of the airport cannot be stopped. In this time window your productivity is as follows: 1. You will not be working on Saturdays and Sundays as the airport is operational.  How to create and modify a calendar? Add and remove currencies? Exercise 8: Consolidation of all the learning objectives so far. Runway Marking Project A typical runway has following dimensions: Runway markings are specialized markings. Heat treatment) . Presently. Threshold: 4 days. ph Neutralization. With these constraints you effectively have only 3 h/day time window. Center line 4. Fixed distance markings (Every 150 m only 2 on both the sides) Use Tilos to plan and execute this project. work has to be carried out when there is no traffic. Paint Coat.

the crew and equipment cost you Rs.000 per day. Assign the resources and determine the total project cost.2. Touch down zone: 4 days (same as threshold) 3. A possible solution: . Both the sets can perform any of the 4 operations mentioned above. Center line: 150 m of runway length per day 4. Fixed distance markings: 1 set per day per crew You have only 2 sets of crew and equipment. Also. 27. Use Tilos to make this schedule and determine the number of days required for this project.

The basic data of this project is as follows:     Start date:4/9/2010 End date: 30/9/2010 Start distance: -100 m End distance: 30000 m The distance data of the stationsS. Import this data in Tilos schedule and calibrate it with the Time Distance Diagram.No 1 2 3 Station Miyapur JNTU College Housing Board Inter Station Distance (in km) 0 1.77 .32 From Miyapur Junction (in km) 0 1.

Exercise 13 Import a MS Project schedule in Tilos. It is linear project of building a 720 m long tunnel. Same schedule of the Tunnel project is also saved in MS Project format. and end are given in a separate excel sheet. Import this schedule in Tilos.Exercise 12 A schedule is given in Primavera 6 format. 2013 How to do this exercise:  End date: Nov. The basic data about this project is:  Start date: April 9. Open the file (in XER) format in Primavera 6. If you wish you can even incorporate Task templates names. modify the Links spreadsheet to make it compatible with Tilos. 2013 1. Similarly. Once the data is in Tilos you will have to start modifying as per your requirement. 3. 5. You will have to perform same logical steps as mentioned earlier for Primavera import. 7. export  From Start Primavera distance: -170 m the project in excel format. 22. Modify the format to ensure compatibility with Tilos 4.
