Objectives and Approach

The objective of this project is to improve productivity in the heavy engineering and construction site industries by the application of IT techniques to the monitoring and control of all aspects of the production process. The system to be developed will address the specific characteristics of the industry, ie "one of a kind" construction, complexity, parallel design, procurement and construction, dependency on a large number of suppliers and subcontractors, and construction sites remote from pre-production assembly areas and workshops.

ROCOCO aims to:

Exploitation

The construction industry partners expect to apply the project results to their own construction activities. The IT vendor partners plan to exploit the results in the form of hardware and software products.
