About Linear project

Hubert Geier - Management

Linear project is a leading provider of linear scheduling software catering for a global market via its multi-channel distribution throughout the continents.

The development of our TIme-LOcation System (TILOS) commenced in 1998 as a joint effort of two leading construction companies at the time. The goal was to enable the effective planning and control of linear projects such as road, tunnels and track building projects by extending Gantt chart based project planning to time-distance diagram planning.

Due to the major success in Germany, we quickly developed a global distribution network and nowadays, TILOS is the software of choice for large international infrastructure projects:
The top ten European construction companies all use TILOS.

On March 5, 2015 Trimble announced that it has acquired Linear project GmbH. Trimble's Heavy Civil Construction Division is a leading innovator of productivity solutions for the heavy and highway contractor. Trimble's solutions leverage a variety of technologies, including Global Positioning System (GPS), construction lasers, total stations, wireless data communications, the Internet and application software. As part of the Trimble Connected Site strategy, these solutions provide a high-level of process and workflow integration from the design phase through to the finished project—delivering significant improvements in productivity throughout the construction lifecycle. The addition of TILOS to Trimble's Heavy Civil Construction portfolio gives us the ability to collectively work on a more robust solution for linear infrastructure planning, execution and production control.

Linear project concentrates on developing methods and tools to make the planning of linear and repetitive work more efficient. Because of this, the integration of location constraints in scheduling via the critical path method (CPM), was developed. Integration with other PM systems plays a major part in the development, which allows our clients to retain their established company standards whilst using the premium solution for linear planning.

TILOS Mission Statement and Promise


  • No other project management system gives you greater power to plan linear projects.

  • Construction site geometry, schedules, resources and costs in a single plan help to foresee and avoid expensive pitfalls in order to achieve your desired targets.
