Quantm Benefits

From Vision to Viability

Trimble Quantm Alignment Planning solutions support road and rail planners and engineers through the complex process of selecting and generating 3D corridors and alignments. Quantm's 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, and deliver improved alignments that meet environmental, heritage, urban constraints, and design standards set by each project.
