The due diligence design procedures enable users to create a baseline project plan and schedule configured as a decision analysis model. This provides an appropriate data structure for input to Navatec's optimization system that applies the most advanced and proven analytical simulation methods to identify ways to improve the project design. A reiterative process helps users understand the different trade-offs between decision preferences and objectives and to optimise the combination of resources available. This defines critical path options that not only focus on time schedules but also take into account the following optimization objectives:
  • Output quantity
  • Output quality
  • Unit costs
  • Total costs
  • Timeliness of whole project cycle
  • Identification of least risk critical paths
  • Impact assessments:
    • economic & financial
    • environment & ecosystem
    • social

The decision analysis model is also used to simulate the impact of potential changes during implementation on the project performance. This helps assess the project resilience and this information is recorded together with all design information in an Accumulog (blockchain). This is structured to provide expert tactical guidance for decision-making to achieve sustainability in spite of the inevitable changes that take place during implementation and beyond.

Navatec helps project managers identify the most effective, efficient and economic designs as project proposals. These are evidence-based and therefore provide an objective basis for donor and investor appraisal and objective decisions on which projects should be supported.
