Design for Fabrication
Build efficiency into every infrastructure project through innovative collaboration
Typical BIM solutions are fragmented. When conceptual design plans are turned over for detailed design work, there is no continuity. Early designers lose out on the insight of product experts, leading to later rework. Without integrative knowledge of product details, predicting project costs and schedules are, at best, guessing games for conceptual designers. Delivering projects on time and on budget is a challenge for designers whose plans may pose unexpected complexities for end-product fabricators. Conceptual designers may struggle to ensure design intent is communicated clearly to the fabricators who interpret their plans.
The Building 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 Integrated BIM Environments. Design and simulate any building, structure, building element or object. Mock up all projects from office furniture to industrial sheds, high rise buildings, and custom architectures. Use integrative, parametric, associative and computational, modeling methods to increase productivity and optimize project value through iterative design.
Building Design for Fabrication promotes a highly collaborative approach linking the appropriate technologies. Talent, technique, and technology come together within one solution to deliver high performance, value, and efficiency while reducing waste and embodied energy.
