Most Architecture, Engineering & Construction projects bring together an entirely new team of designers, fabricators, and contractors—all operating within their own systems, elaborating on design and BIM data, but never fully sharing knowledge. Fragmentation has historically led to construction waste at levels of more than 25 percent through redundant designs, idle labor, and rework. 

Design for Fabrication based on Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE® platform creates a single source of truth for construction projects. By adopting seamless collaborative processes, multiple project stakeholders can realize significant savings in time and money, and improve quality within integrated BIM environments.

Design for Fabrication serves as a single source of truth for construction projects by seamlessly blending data from the design phase into shop drawings. Through an industrialized construction process, design models become the basis for fabrication. This BIM environment can significantly reduce the waste and rework found in the traditional design and construction process—and yield big rewards for project owners and stakeholders.

The Design for Fabrication Industry Solution Experience, built on the cloud-based 3DEXPERIENCE platform, efficiently and consistently covers project requirements end-to-end: from planning and design to fabrication and execution. 

An integrated BIM environment promotes a highly collaborative approach, linking the appropriate technologies.

Key capabilities & benefits

  • Design and simulate any building, structure, building element, or object from the conceptual level down to the smallest detail.
  • Use integrative, parametric, associative, and computational modeling methods to increase productivity and optimize project value through iterative design.
  • Combine talent, technique, and technology to deliver high performance, value, and efficiency while reducing environmental impact and waste.
  • Leverage the insight and input of experts across the supply chain to create an informed design.

New technologies, such as the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, are enabling the AEC industry to automate processes and create a lot of value.
