dRofus is a unique planning, data management, and BIM collaboration tool that provides all stakeholders with comprehensive workflow support and access to building information throughout the building lifecycle.
dRofus is a SQL server database that will provide state of the art performance and speed regardless of project size, type or complexity. dRofus offers planning, data management and BIM collaboration tools that help provide comprehensive workflow support and access to building information throughout the entire building lifecycle.
Plan, manage, and maintain data for departments, rooms, room templates, finishes, items, systems, and components – all in a single cloud-based platform.
The Room Data Sheet (RDS) contains the project requirements and/or other information specified for the rooms. The information can either come from project defined room templates or be completely unique. RDS can be reported/exported to PDF, Excel, xml, IFC or synchronized as room parameters directly to design models using plug-ins.
Structure planned rooms in a project in a clear, organized manner. All rooms are assigned with a unique room function number, programmed area, and other project defined parameters. dRofus enables all involved parties to access room and area overviews.
Register and manage all room contents and building elements such as furniture, fixtures, and equipment in the dRofus Item overview. Organize Items in project defined groups and create items directly in dRofus or create BIM objects as Items through plug-ins. This forms the basis for quantity take-off, costing and procurement calculation for the equipment in the project.
Assign finishes to rooms via either room templates or to individual rooms directly. Finishes are first established in the Items overview and then added to rooms in project defined categories including Floors, Walls, Columns, and Ceiling. Finishes can easily be reported in various reports, quantified, and linked to BIM objects such as Revit materials.
Orders created in the Procurement module can be transferred to the Delivery module. In the Delivery module, the Items can be split into individual instances for attaching unique data such as registration and serial numbers.
Systems can be created in dRofus or imported from Revit using plug-ins. Organize and maintain all data on systems and associated components in a structured environment. Attach Products and Documents to assemble as-built documentation for handover to facility management. Systems in dRofus support the use of multiple classifications and provide multiple field edit functions for fast data entry.
The module TIDA (Technical Information Database) is a FM handover system where contractors have access to upload all FM documentation related to “their” systems and components. TIDA can also help you in an early phase to specify your requirements to technical systems and components in the building, in addition to providing accurate and consistent FM numbering of all objects with a multidisciplinary marking system (TFM).
The Punch Lists is a web-based system to communicate observations and comments during construction site visits between the client or project manager and the contractor on a building project.
With the Function Program module, define and register early phase requirements of a project, department or sub-departments, even before you have a confirmed list of rooms. With dRofus, various sets of requirements can be specified in a centralized location in a consistent and structured manner for the project. Making it easy to find the relevant information efficiently at any time.
The Procurement module can be used to manage the planned Items through all steps in the procurement process. During the entire procurement process, the users can control which Items to be purchased, and in which rooms the Items to be located, whether they are in tender, offer, agreement or order status.
The graphical function planner is a module used to visually plan functions and rooms in a project. You can use this to create, edit and delete functions and rooms, define programmed areas and the detailed requirements for the rooms.
The integrated IFC Model Server makes it easy to visualize and validate a project across multiple design models. Viewing through the Model Server, users of dRofus have access to the latest design models and validation reports between program and design without any additional file handling.
Reports and Exports
dRofus has over 70 built-in PDF reports and Excel exports. Our clients can also utilize XF Designer, a third party report template authoring tool, to create specialized reports of their own. We can also create custom PDF reports to fit the project/organization requirements.
dRofus` advanced plug-ins to Revit and ArchiCAD provide excellent workflow support for architects and engineers. Integrate program data with design for validation of building requirements and bidirectional synchronization between dRofus and project models.
Secure and Accessible
Data is securely stored on a central server allowing users to connect and read data regardless of their physical location. User access rights are controlled to ensure data security.
Capture client requirements and manage facility standards across multiple projects. Room templates and global items catalouge help standardize rooms and content to kick start new projects.
Data Centric Approach to BIM
Plan, create and manage building data input from every stakeholder capturing relevant building/project information for all objects in BIM, cross domain, discipline and model; including data outside of the BIM platform.
All changes applied to dRofus are logged. The logs will show who changed what and when. Apply log notes and use changelists to communicate why changes were made. Advanced search capabilities make it easy to schedule or report relevant changes.
