Functional design

A Functional Design of a working environment is coordinated with the requirements as specified by the operational process and the tasks and actions to be executed by personnel within it.

If coordination is insufficiently robust, this can lead to a non-functional design or impractical layout of the working environment. What is more, this can lead to dissatisfaction among end users.

Mistakes and imperfections in the designs also lead to extra post-project costs due to repetition and/or execution of recovery actions.

HTDS supports you in your (re)design projects

The realization of a functional (re)design for future situations requires custom solutions. For this purpose. HTDS has developed its own TUNASS® methodology. The result is a conceptual design that specifies the requirements of the functional process and the tasks and actions to be carried out by personnel.
The functional design is the basis, the starting point. Thereafter follows the project phase in which the design must be specified to the smallest detail, including construction and materials selection.

The functional design is described via a Programme of functional requirements and can be visualised using 3-dimensional models. These models give all parties a good idea of the future working environment. Furthermore, it is also possible to model the new design virtually using software simulations, allowing key aspects – such as critical sightlines – to be checked at an early stage.

In addition to software simulations, a physical simulation of the design is also possible with the construction of a 1:1 scale model (Mock-up study).
The Programme of functional requirements can be used as input for the next project. In relevant situations it can also be added to tender documents or submitted to potential suppliers.
