Digital-Aided Design

Digital-Aided Design (DAD) is the method and process of digitally creating a model and design simulations of how people, processes and technology assets relate and depend on each other.

The model is created using a combination of the OBASHI Methodology and software technologies enabling the connectivity between assets, the flow of data, and attributed information to be visualised and analysed - often in a collaborative manner.
