Added value & customer benefits

The designed digital mock-up allows for a simple volumetric verification between systems in order to:

  • Correlate volumetric composition with programmatic and regulatory requirements
  • Define the main components intended to organize parts of work, by nature and function
  • Realize business interfaces between systems and subsystems at a simple technical and cost level
  • Adopt a referencing of geographical coordinates like Lambert or equivalent.
