Reference architecture framework for digital construction platforms
WeatherBuild®, Decision Support Solutions for the Construction Industry and Built Environment®, is proud to join DigiPLACE, a framework driving the development of future digital platforms that support innovation and commerce. “In the modern economy, digitalization is a major driver of productivity growth… To remain competitive in an increasingly globalized market, the EU (and global) economy must transform itself digitally.”
The construction sector is characterized by a high presence of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), low capitalization, a low rate of higher educated employees, low investment in innovation, and a long supply chain. Moreover, in the EU market, different languages, taxation, and regulatory frameworks are obstacles to synergies. Accordingly, DigiPLACE addresses these issues and exploits the EU added value.
DigiPLACE is a framework promoting the development of future digital platforms as common ecosystems of digital services. Further, DigiPLACE defines a “reference architecture framework” for digital construction platforms based on an EU-wide consensus involving a large community of stakeholders. The objective: a strategic roadmap for the successful implementation of the digital architecture.
DigiPLACE is a framework allowing the development of future digital platforms as common ecosystems of digital services that will support innovation, commerce, etc. It will define a Reference Architecture Framework for digital construction platforms based on an EU-wide consensus involving a large community of stakeholders, resulting in a strategic roadmap for the successful implementation of this architecture. The project has received funding from the European Union’s H2020 program under Grant Agreement N. 856943.
