Quantm

Consider all feasible route alternatives to help make the best decisions

Unlike the traditional approach, Trimble® Quantm™ technology explores and analyzes millions of alternatives and returns a range of alternatives to the planning team for consideration.

Quantm alignment planning helps road and rail planners through the complex process of selecting and generating 3D corridors and alignments with the unique route optimization technology. Quantm generates millions of alternative alignments and returns a range of 10-50 of the best options for review. This approach quickly demonstrates that all reasonable alternatives have been considered as required by planning legislation and financial managers.

This solution enables planners and engineers to reduce project planning time, lower construction costs, focus on sustainability and better meet environmental, heritage, urban constraints, and design standards set by each project. Beginning with your vision and ending with a viable infrastructure product, Trimble supports you with advanced planning solutions.

Trimble Quantm Alignment Planning solutions support road and rail planners and engineers through the complex process of selecting and generating 3D corridors and alignments.

Unique route optimization technology generates millions of alternative alignments and returns a range of 10-50 of the best options for review by various stakeholders.

Trimble Quantm solutions enable planners and engineers to:

• Reduce project planning time

• Substantially lower alignment construction costs

• Deliver improved alignments that meet environmental, heritage, urban constraints, and design standards set by each project.

Beginning with your vision and ending with a viable infrastructure product, Trimble supports you with the most advanced alignment planning solutions in the industry.

Trimble Quantm Software helps you plan a new high speed, freight, or passenger rail project, or a new highway project, more rapidly with lower construction costs.

Trimble Quantm Software makes it easier to:

• Consider all feasible alternatives to help make the best decisions

• Plan for sustainability with better environmental and public outcomes

• Invest in a better future by reducing capital and operating expenses



Quickly create optimal alignments based on cost, environmental and other constraints

Trimble® Quantm® Alignment Planning System is a highly effective route optimization software for determining and costing optimal 3D corridors and alignments. Its application ranges from high level planning studies for DOTs and owners, to detailed value engineering for contractors and design consultants.

Quantm’s route optimization technology generates millions of alternative alignments and returns a range of 10-50 of the best options for review by various stakeholders.

Quickly determine the best route for rail or road project with Quantm

Using proven Trimble Quantm technology, planners and designers now have the ability to minimize the environmental and social impact of road and rail projects, while reducing construction and operating costs for tax payers and project owners. The solutions are utilized at every stage of the planning process from initial scoping through feasibility, detailed planning and pre-bid, and post-bid award value engineering studies.
Projects of all types and sizes can take advantage of the benefits of the Trimble Quantm technology. Examples range from regional, state and national transportation infrastructure planning to small bypasses and road realignments. In addition, the system can be used for mining, forestry and utility industry infrastructure.

There’s Now an Easier Way

to generate road and rail alignment options that satisfy cost, environmental and community constraints

High Speed Rail

The Quantm technology has been used worldwide for planning over 5,500 kilometers (3,417 miles) of high speed rail.

Portugal

Following the successful application of the Quantm system on the Northern Line, the Portuguese high speed rail authority (RAVE), chose the Trimble Quantm technology to plan the complete national network of high speed rail.

California

After the application of the Quantm system during Programmatic Studies, Quantm technology was subsequently applied again during the detailed alternatives analysis to incorporate emerging constraints as they were identified in the field.

Road Projects

The Quantm system has helped planners find big cost savings on both large and small road projects. The rapid generation of alternatives and the ability to determine environmental impacts are also valuable benefits of the Quantm system for smaller projects.

Statewide or Regional Road Planning

The Quantm technology is used from preliminary scoping at a regional level to the development of full statewide transportation planning. The 1000 mile Trans-Texas Corridor Study greatly benefited from the Quantm system during the corridor alternatives evaluation process.

Quantm enabled the planners and engineers to consider an extensive range of options. They were able to review various “what if” scenarios and test a series of geometric parameters quickly, to consider numerous planning alternatives, and avoid, minimize or mitigate the impacts on sensitive environmental resources.

Idaho

The Idaho Transportation Department and their local engineering consultant applied the Quantm system to screen alternatives and selected two highway
corridors for further National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) evaluation. In doing
so, they developed a process to screen alternatives that addresses the challenges for determining new highway corridor alternatives. This was achieved by the ability of the Quantm system to ensure comparisons on location, impact on environment, cost and compliance
with engineering criteria and to generate new alternatives rapidly.

New Zealand

The Okarahia Realignment project was a 2km (1.25 mile) section of State Highway 1 in New Zealand. The Quantm system
was used to improve both the horizontal and vertical alignments of the road.
In addition to meeting all defined environmental situations and avoiding constraints, the Quantm-generated alignment cut construction cost by 13%.

THE RESULT?

up to 50 alignment options that
that optimize cost, environmental and community constraints:
