RATAS strategy

[ Home | What is | Vision | Strategy | New | Events | Product data | Links | Projects | People | Reports ]


By means of collaborative R&D and pilot projects the vision is aimed at within the following target areas:

Electronic building information service
TeleRATAS was originally available on a dial-up server and now on CD-ROMs. In the near future WWW will be the main dissemination media.

Data exchange
International and industry standards for data exchange are supported when available. Development of new standards e.g. STEP & IFC are followed up. National standards have been defined for building classification, CAD layers, EDI messages and product data when international standards are missing.

Product modelling applications
Data models and software prototypes have been developed to support implementation of product model based applications by independent companies.

Construction process reengineering
Organisational & process changes enabled by IT are encouraged by reference process models and guidelines for practitioners and developers.
