Design for Fabrication
Build efficiency into every infrastructure project through innovative collaboration
Authorities have high expectations for timely, cost-effective infrastructure projects. When civil designers and engineers use different applications to address conceptual and detailed design phases, redundant rework—and resulting delays—are common. When designers and engineers work in technology-enforced siloes, each loses out on expert knowledge that can inform project improvements. A lack of integration and interoperability between BIM applications leads to errors and frequent requests for information. Productivity can be improved by capitalizing on specialized knowledge in the conceptual design stage and integrating expert know-how in a single source BIM environment. When deliverables are not linked to the master design, engineering modifications result in change orders, delays, and cost overruns.
The Civil Design for Fabrication Industry Process Experience, built on the cloud-based, collaborative 3DEXPERIENCE® platform, efficiently and consistently covers project requirements end-to-end: from planning and design to fabrication and execution within an integrated BIM environment. Collate, model, and simulate point clouds, terrain, earthworks, hydrology, geology, alignments, and more. Civil IFC data types cater to large projects, such as roads, rail, tunnels, or bridges. Using integrative, parametric, associative, and computational modeling methods along with customizable and repeatable templates, teams can maximize project value through iterative design.
Civil Design for Fabrication’s integrated BIM environment promotes a highly collaborative approach by linking the appropriate technologies. Leverage talent, technique, and technology to deliver high performance, value, and efficiency.
