TRAKware is a business management solution that contains an extremely instinctive synchronized scheduling system to recreate the production schedule graphically and convey it to all the personnel engaged with the project.
TRAKware provides great benefits to a large number of industry sectors that range from Retail Environments / Store Fixtures, Architectural Woodworking / Architectural Millwork, Cabinets & Casegoods, Doors & Windows, Furniture, Equipment, Oil & Gas (Rigs, Pressure Vessels, Piping, Separators, Tanks, Skids), Metal Fabricators, Plastic Injection Molding, Solid Surface, Truck Mounted Equipment and Electronics, contract, engineer-to-order (ETO) manufacturing, fabrication, and construction companies
TRAKware's ground-breaking and proven parametric configuration engine offers huge benefits for estimating, manufacturing, and engineering, during the complete project lifecycle.
TRAKware is mostly applied by metal fabircators. TRAKware can resolve particular issues and generate an incorporated, powerful, consistent and time-tested solution scalable to any size custom metal fabricator.
TRAKware can automatically find out instantaneous labor and material consumption from quoting/estimation through to delivery and installation, finish with start-to-finish traceability.
TRAKware plays a proactive role for midstream corrections when necessary for fabricators. TRAKware can be useful from estimation to project completion. It’s exclusive parametric quoting engine provides quicker, precise estimating to effortlessly capture all valuable project information required to drive material, labor & work order management, purchasing, receiving, inventory, scheduling, invoicing, and change-order management from the original estimator’s "take-off".TRAKware can be set up over the divisions of the company reorganizing core business verticals as well as financials, inventory and production management. Real-time information assimilation from the shop floor - to the top floor facilitating constant visibility and control over all dimension of daily operations. This leads to well-timed and significant decision making.

Nomitech just launches the updated version of its Cost Estimating solution, CostOS 4.3.
With this new version the estimating professionals will be able to price any phase of an estimate (from cost plan or viability to final bid) on a solitary platform, with implanted BIM measure and parametric assemblies by applying local (historic) or online data .
CostOS Version 4.3 is incorporated with Oracle’s Primavera P6, fully supporting Oracle’s technology (database, Java etc).
The users can modify their pricing layout to fulfill the requirements of various styles of tender.
CostOS can generate parametric smart assemblies and cost models to rapidly price recurring and compound structures.
CostOS effectively work in assessing alternatives and value engineering opportunities, instantly and precisely.
CostOS provides resource price escalations to anticipate costs over the period of the project.
The cost estimator will be in a position to produce the Bill of Quantities straightforwardly on their 3D model and verify how it is developed as your estimate is in-progress. The estimator can apply the local/server cost database, the online commercial databases (i.e. Richardson, Spon’s, NODOC) equally to locate cost data compatible with the chosen entities and directly allocate this data to their model.
CostOS facilitates a construction company to create a network involving suppliers and subcontractors and maintain a record of the cost efficiency of its equipment fleet, a database with cost rates from diverse geographical regions.
The quantity takeoff of anyproject (Architectural, Structural, Mechanical, HVAC, Electrical etc) is greatly enhanced with unmatched precision.
With CostOS’s system recognition the estimator can perform on mechanical models with superior accuracy & speed and effortlessly detect omissions or inaccuracies of the design and revise their estimate consequently.The 3D cost viewer produces a visual illustration of the cost. Connect to an entity of the 3D model and notice immediately the resources and the cost associated with it. Utilize various layouts and offer the project owner with a visual observation depicting what he will acquire for his budget. Designers, Contractors and Project Owners can interrelate easily and bring the most cost effective or best value for money solutions.

Now-a-days technology has brought a sea change in construction sectors. The third-generation iPad and improving Android tablets are playing a vital role for every construction industry.
The contractors can utilize iPads for gathering information form project blueprints and architect’s drawings to schedule and material inventory. The contractor can just open up his blueprints application, markup the issue and email it to the architect. With iPad the contractors can snap panoramic photographs during the construction phases tagged with the location wherever the image was located.
After the completion of the project iPad facilitate building owner to view what’s located behind the walls and present the view of the photographs previously snapped of the same location.
iPad can generate a x-ray vision to the contractors and worker for viewing through wall, 3D walk-throughs of a blueprints and instant amendment of specifications all through theconstruction process.
The contractors can walk around the job site with reorganized documents in a electronic tablet.
iPads are connected with the other computer systems that conveys minute information from project blueprints, architect’s drawings, schedules and material inventory.
The contractors can get a clear view of the site and deliver it to the design and get design solution within a second.
By applying iPads, contractors can show up to the job site prepared prior to meet with other team members of the project and having different set of drawings. The construction professionals can also receive a constantly updated version of blueprints at their fingertips.
The contractors can take a sequence of photos with a wide-angle photographic lens before the drywall goes on and stitch them with iPano which provide a total pan of the room to maintain record. As for instance, if a leak is detected, the contractor can locate the area prior to splitting the wall apart by using the iPad to view accurately where the pipes in question are located.
