Let systems engineering work for you

Let systems engineering work for you

Increase performance in infrastructure projects is becoming increasingly important. We find it more important to build better, safer and more sustainable. Systems engineering is therefore becoming increasingly important to keep a grip on the project result from start to finish. Digitization makes the application of systems engineering increasingly cheaper. Most people now consider working digitally normal. How can you let systems engineering work for you?

Keeping control of the work when innovation is realized has specific challenges. Project realization is often carried out in multiple execution periods and with different disciplines. The time of an implementation period is limited because the infrastructure must also be available for use. No time to lose during the execution of the work. Transparency of the status of the work is important to know whether the work can be carried out within the planned period. Each discipline has its own way of working, with different forms and specific quality requirements. Working for each discipline with its own working method and keeping control over the whole. This is possible with the forms in KE-chain.

More control over progress with the dashboard widget

More control over progress with the dashboard widget

The dashboard widget provides an extra opportunity to improve your understanding of the project. With the dashboard you have an overview of the work that is open, still to be assigned and what is behind schedule. You can use the new dashboard widget anywhere in your project. Soon it will also be a standard part of the application.

Control over maintenance: from inspections to invoicing in practice

Control over maintenance: from inspections to invoicing in practice

Maintaining an overview of maintenance work has its challenges. During maintenance, several registrations are usually made in a number of steps to carry out the work. Smart handover of information between these steps saves a lot of time. Time that would otherwise be lost searching for information, keeping separate lists, calling or texting each other and merging information. How much easier would it be if you no longer have to manually transfer information? This is possible with the forms in KE-chain. Joost Schut is happy to tell us more about it.

Bidirectional interface between KE-chain and Relatics at Mourik

Bidirectional interface between KE-chain and Relatics at Mourik

Like many infrastructure companies, Mourik uses Relatics to keep an overview of the requirements for specification and verification. They use KE chain to carry out inspections and other registrations. To maintain an overview in one place, the results of the inspections are combined in Relatics. This was an error-prone and manual administrative process for the use of KE-chain. With KE-chain they have created a bidirectional link that optimizes the entire process. Maarten Boer, information manager and systems engineer at Mourik, is happy to tell us more.

KE-chain integrates with the new VMAP standard various simulation software in a workflow

KE-chain integrates with the new VMAP standard various simulation software in a workflow

Today’s best products are all designed with an integrated approach to development and manufacturing processes. Ideally, all data on material properties and behavior is available throughout the workflow. However, so far, many different interfaces and systems have hindered the use of material data across the entire workflow. Together with 30 international partners we have joined forces to change that in the ITEA3 project VMAP – Virtual Material Modeling in Manufacturing project. With the VMAP standard, we were able to integrate various simulation software into a workflow with KE-chain. Bastiaan Beijer was involved in this as an expert of the KE-chain platform and is happy to tell us more about the project.
