Construction SaaS That Supports Safe Delivery

August 18, 2022

Construction saas whitepaper
In 2022 alone, we’ve seen major reforms to building safety legislation. Five years after the Grenfell fire, we are starting to see regulation come into force to ensure more is done to protect residents and tighten up standards across our built environment.

Understanding and Choosing Metrics for Building Performance Standards

whitePaper | July 21, 2022

President Biden has called for net-zero emissions, economy-wide, by 2050. Accomplishing this will require increasing efficiency, vastly increasing renewable energy capacity, and transitioning from fossil fuels to clean electricity. Buildings have a critical role to play in achieving each of these objectives. This paper proposes a framework for determining which metrics are best suited for policies to move existing commercial and multifamily buildings forward on the path toward zero carbon emissions. Choosing the right metrics is necessary for effective policies, but it is not sufficient to achieving a just and inclusive energy transition. Building performance policies — in conjunction with other complementary policies — must bring the benefits of improved performance to those living in affordable housing andhistorically underserved communities, and at the same time ensure that the cost of compliance does not create new burdens. Jurisdictions must consider the impact of policy decisions on equitable outcomes, particularly with respect to establishing performance levels, options for compliance, and penalties for non-compliance.

Going Digital in Construction Sector: One Step at a Time

whitePaper | February 25, 2020

Globalization has driven the use of digital technologies across all industries. While many sectors have adopted the changes as feasible, several are yet to leverage the opportunities arising out of the same. According to different studies, the construction industry is also catching up, albeit slowly, in the drive to leverage the benefits of cloud, Blockchain, IoT, analytics, Big Data, Drones etc.

SIMPLIFYING MODEL-BASED SYSTEMS ENGINEERING

whitePaper | June 23, 2022

Model-Based Systems Engineering (MBSE) is perhaps one of the most misunderstood and often abused acronyms in the engineering vernacular. Many companies struggle to understand how it will improve their entire product lifecycle and address the ever-increasing complexity of products. In many companies, executives and middle management experience a lack of understanding regarding the rapid pace of today’s technology and its impact on organizations and processes. Technical practitioners may gain additional insight as they focus their energies on establishing strong MBSE practices. The successful implementation of MBSE includes transformations and enhancements in three key areas: organization, process and technology. This white paper shares proper planning and implementation considerations in adopting an MBSE practice. It provides a high-level view, defines critical components to help success and identifies many problematic areas to avoid in an implementation journey.

AI Requires Tailored DRAM Solutions

whitePaper | April 6, 2020

For over 30 years, DRAM has continuously adapted to the needs of each new wave of hardware spanning PCs, game consoles, mobile phones and cloud servers. AI/ML may be the biggest challenge yet. Artificial intelligence is the study and application of providing hardware and software that attempt to emulate human intelligence. Therefore, as human beings adapt to different tasks, AI must adapt. Indeed, if AI is to scale to the diversity of human tasks, it will not be via a single, monolithic solution. For every task a human can perform, AI must adapt through a unique combination of hardware and software components.
