Tilos training: Individual courses for your entry into scheduling with time-location-diagrams

Tilos training: Individual courses for your entry into scheduling with time-location-diagrams

Why is Tilos training useful?

The Tilos scheduling software for linear projects has exceptionally rich and specialized display and scheduling capabilities. There are four main focuses in the operation:

  1. General usage of the graphical software-like interface
  2. Layout of charts including additional distance information for time-location diagrams
  3. The actual linear scheduling including resource planning
  4. Presentation and design of meaningful, professional time-location-chharts

Although you can familiarize oneself with the usage of Tilos itself, experience shows that this is a time-consuming and often ineffective process. Often there are gaps in knowledge. If you need to be effective quickly, Tilos training or individual training / coaching can help.

If you would like to get involved in the many functions of Tilos in a targeted and efficient manner, Planavista Consulting with its many years of experience in a wide range of Tilos applications / projects and user groups is an important contact.

Even if you only want to use limited functions, this is analyzed in the training and presented to you exactly as it makes sense for you.

Our strength is:

We adapt individually to your goals and questions
and shape the Tilos training with you and for you.


Because we are often asked for the contents of the training, we have put together a list for you. Of course, this is not complete or exhaustive and can of course be adapted individually to you:

Tilos Training, Content

A two-day training course is suggested and has proven itself. On the first day, the most important basics are imparted, which are then deepened, repeated and practiced on the second day according to individual knowledge and interests. It also explains best practices and ways to import data from other systems (such as: excel, project). After two days, the employees should be able to quickly schedule even large projects with special presentations and layouts. If a specific project is pending, this project can already be started on the second day: a very good start into the field, in which a result that can be used is already produced
