Design for Fabrication

Build efficiency into every infrastructure project through innovative collaboration

Systems Design for Fabrication

Connect your systems design from concept through fabrication

When MEP and critical systems are not coordinated in design, system rework is nearly a guarantee. Budget overruns commonly arise from the need to move installed systems to accommodate later additions. Collaboration from design through system engineering can instantly identify and resolve conflicts, reduce clashes, and eliminate rework with integrated BIM environments. This in turn improves site logistics, reduces project costs, and leads to advanced delivery. To meet owners’ demands for cost and delivery savings, more projects are turning to prefabricated elements that can be installed at once. Systems designers and engineers are looking for new solutions to take work off the site while easing installation logistics. 

The Systems 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. Plan, model, and simulate any building system element for any scale of project from single occupant to campus and city infrastructure. Design modular plants and runs to reduce field clash and schedule. Use integrative, parametric, associative, and computational modeling methods to increase productivity and optimize project value through iterative design.

Systems Design for Fabrication promotes a highly collaborative approach linking appropriate technologies with integrated BIM environments. Combine talent, technique, and technology to deliver high performance, value, and efficiency while reducing waste and embodied energy.

Key capabilities & benefits
