Very simple process:
We do believe that we are witnessing the new era of information technology in buildings and equipment design. We are aspiring in the nearest future to obtain certification for upper levels of BIM and actively researching further technologies in information modelling and design automation. Specifically, we are deeply interested in both R&D as well as product life-cycle applications such as digital prototyping and digital twins.
We strongly believe that that current digital innovation will change the built environment and industrial world in the nearest future. Also, we undoubtedly see ourselves as an active engineering consulting firm working in the specified field. Currently, we are conducting extensive research on this subject and also working on some pilot projects.
A digital prototype is a computer file or group of connected files containing a computer-aided design of the equipment or machinery created to the finest level of detail. Using such files during development of industrial machinery or industrial facilities allows us to virtually test equipment under real world conditions, providing the designer with optimization feedback and a continuous improvement loop prior to creation of a physical prototype. This generates substantial savings in time and cost during development, and reduces technology performance risks allowing the project owner to complete the development stage with much less effort. Modern software packages allow digital prototyping to occur on an entirely new scale, substantively shifting the trial and error process from physical to digital objects, and delivering unprecedented affordability and efficiency of the innovation process.
