Product Overview: Multi-D, Rosatom

Multi-D is a set of systems, or business services, on a technological platform designed to automate the processes of capital construction, construction control, and project scheduling management. These systems continue to evolve, and when a specific project is being implemented, we can quickly assemble a project IT landscape from flexible digital solutions that are tailored to the specific process, much like building with a constructor. In civil construction, the processes tend to be more typical, whereas in industrial construction, they differ from project to project, primarily because large corporations with complex process structures handle this type of construction. Therefore, ready-made products may not be suitable for a project's specific needs without customization. The platform is universal in this sense, and we can assemble a product that fits a particular enterprise's needs and begin working on it immediately.
Currently, the Multi-D digital product line consists of

Multi-D Unified Time Schedule

A unified schedule is an analytical system capable of combining and comparing an unlimited number of schedules created in various calendar planning systems and fixing the final deadline for delivering the project. It allows for flexible adjustment of the rules linking individual schedules from various contractors in different areas and the rules for identifying conflicts. Detected schedule collisions are unloaded into standard reports. Popular calendar network planning systems on the market cannot handle the data volumes of Rosatom. The unified schedule supports schedules with more than 200,000 lines and 100 or more attributes per task, provides versioning. It can be compared to a computing machine, inside of which all the connections for the 4th-level schedule are embedded. This tool operates on a "What if?" principle. If one milestone is shifted somewhere, how will it affect all these connections? For example, how will a shift in the delivery of reinforcement affect the overall completion time of construction and installation work?

Multi-D IMS is a PLM-class system for managing information for contractors and customers. It gathers information about the project and change management. The program enables project participants to work in a unified information field, maintains complex connections between various data about the object placed in the system, and allows managing and controlling the contractor's obligations at all stages of construction.

Multi-D Project breaks down working documentation into sets, dividing them into weekly and daily tasks, which are subsequently divided down to person-day precision, and so on. Multi-D Project allows controlling the progress of task execution with detailed planning and fact accounting.

Multi-D Docs&Resources is an electronic document flow and resource loading monitoring system. It is capable of organizing clear document flow, tracking resource loading, and controlling production processes. In construction projects, the system allows achieving a significant reduction in costs with minimal IT infrastructure.

Multi-D Enterprise Service Bus is an enterprise integration bus. The system enables centralized configuration and control of information exchange between various information systems.

Currently, the Multi-D Construction Control module is under active development, which is used directly at the construction site.
