Digital Engineering

Digital engineering describes a holistic approach to the design of a complex system: Design using models/data instead of documents, integration of data across models, and the culture change across project teams to realize significant risk reduction on construction cost and schedule.

In the modern world, megaprojects represent the sort of ambitious efforts that can change the world: better airplanes, integrated defense systems, new nuclear reactor systems. The benefits of such projects are enormous, but the challenges can be daunting.

Primary concerns are cost and schedule overruns. Undetected design errors can cascade into construction woes that can put a project over budget or behind schedule. Robust digital engineering helps prevent such calamities. By coordinating design, engineering and construction, the approach keeps cost and schedule on track while dramatically reducing overall program risk.
