Design Performance Indicators (DPI's)
The best compromise between performance, reliability and simplicity is achieved through the use of DPI's.
What is important?
The client provides the main conditions and concerns (execution costs, durability, energy efficiency, weight, ROI, etc.)
Weighted decision matrix. Prioritisation of DPI’s according to the needs of the client.
Conceptual development of potential solutions.
First draft design using innovative tools, e.g. Building Information Modelling (BIM), Computer Assisted Design (CAD).
Model validation according to minimum requirements and available standards.
Using high-end tools in Finite Element Analysis (FEA), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), Energy Efficiency Simulation, and others the solutions are optimised to fit the DPI matrix.
The use of DPI’s guarantees the optimisation of the results to fit the proposed requirements.
