Public infrastructure developments involve multiple stakeholders, so projects require a more integrated and concurrent engineering process to be successfully completed. Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE solutions enable Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industry stakeholders to work together as a team and achieve integrated project delivery.
How to Achieve Integrated Project Delivery for Infrastructure
Public infrastructure development constructs social assets for public use. It produces economic effects directly and indirectly through more efficient management of the urban infrastructure that serves as the basis of business activity and the social life of our citizens, as well as contributing to regional vitalization. For example, the construction of bridges connecting urban and rural areas strengthens transportation pipelines and improves efficiency in the distribution of materials and resources. The Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industry has great social responsibilities. It is expected to ensure efficient usability by, among other things, adopting operationally efficient design and verifying the long-term load-bearing capacity of structures. Due to its nature, public infrastructure development requires strict observance of building codes and industrial standards and adoption of business processes that ensure compliance with related requirements.
In an increasing number of cases, national governments try to access resources and know-how in the private sector by employing new project management schemes known as Public-Private Partnerships (PPP) and Private Finance Initiatives (PFI). As a result, construction companies today need to seek collaboration with many stakeholders, present a “visualization” of projects, and try to improve long-term return on investment (ROI) while considering the entire project lifecycle.
Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE Platform enables integrated project delivery with a foundation that supports open collaboration among companies and organizations involved in public infrastructure development projects. The solution helps overcome challenges and make progress in the Architecture, Engineering, and Construction Industry by transitioning from conventional design, construction, and management techniques that are dependent mostly on 2D drawings to a harmonious and consistent project flow based on the use of 3D master models.
