SPP – Concurrent planning and design
The R&D-projects overall idea is to develop a new methodology to reduce the planning and design time in infrastructure projects with minimum 50% calendar time. The main factor for such a time reduction is better interaction and more parallel work. The aim is therefore to develop a new planning and design process; – “Concurrent planning and design in Infrastructure Projects”(SPP). These projects are dependent on design tools and other software tools to support the new way of working.
SPP should not only be a planning process but will also act as a tool to make decisions. Methods and tools in the SPP should then help supplement technical planning and design with facilitated decision support as well as excellent tools for joint collaboration.
