Abstract of CEO Executive Talk

Mark will address the issues of using design data to improve the quality of design on a narrow and wide scope. He will address the macro economic impact of social and economic infrastructure on the economy and how data an help model, simulate, describe and predict design intent.

The delivery of the design process and how it can be aligned to delivery, measurement and commissioning to ensure improved user outcomes for single, multiple, vertical and horizontal assets with multiple systems and configurations including cities.

Finally Mark will share some examples and case studies of how data can be used to provide asset performance prediction.
