"Our project involved four different EPB and Slurry TBMs from different manufacturers. Using TPC we were able to directly monitor and compare the progress of all TBMs from one computer. We set up a scheme of alarm triggers for critical parameters and developed a consistent, integrated documentation scheme for inspectors across the whole project. Definitely a powerful and flexible tool."

"Aside of the TBM dimension, the geology has some challenges for the whole project team. Even though TPC is collecting 2.000 values every 5 seconds it is still possible to create complex reports and graphics in seconds from any place. We developed our own screens within the software structure and have been well supported through the whole system set-up."

"Aside of the technical challenges of our PPP project with two concurrent driven 6 km Mixshield TBMs, passing under two large waterways, we had to keep various project participants closely involved in the status and progress of the project. Here as well TPC relieved the site management with its flexible reporting tool which, once set-up, fully automatically kept everyone informed with dedicated reports and graphs according to the recipient's project role and the demanded layout and content."

"The use of TPC at Project Hobson proved invaluable in assisting with the efficient project execution. ... it allowed us to analyse specific issues such as spoil conditioning, steering response, grouting and other critical factors to improve performance and provide a benchmark for future projects. The ability to share accurate factual information resulted in ... a genuinely collaborative approach to dealing with problems."
