Technical documentation management
1. TECHNICAL BASIS FOR THE PREPARATION OF DESIGNS OR WORKING PLANS
- An interior design plan. If none is provided, the basic technical documentation (floor plans and wall elevations) can be prepared for the client.
- The consistency of the interior design plan with the building plans (architectural plans, installation plans).
- A bill of quantities.
2. APPOINTMENT OF A RESPONSIBLE DESIGNER
Several designers participate in the preparation of the working documentation for a project. A responsible administrator is selected who provides all the necessary support throughout all stages of the project.
3. ON-SITE MEASUREMENTS
The working documentation is only prepared after all the required measurements have been taken. This ensures the accurate production of products and their smooth and correct installation. Measurements are taken using laser measuring devices; in rooms with particularly complex shapes, measurements are taken using a 3D laser measuring device. Measurement data is transmitted directly to a pre-prepared Excel spreadsheet via Bluetooth.
If the building is still under construction and it is not possible to take all the measurements, a plan (a floor plan with all the construction measurements relevant to the installation of interior elements) is prepared for the construction contractors.
4. PREPARATION OF WORKING PLANS
The designer draws up a working plan using MegaCad with the MegaTischler upgrade for the preparation of specification documents. The plan comprises front, top and side views of the products and all the required details.
If the elements of the product are standardised, bills of materials are prepared if necessary when certain features of elements cannot be shown by drawing details or cross-sections (mainly for dimensioning drilled holes, profiles, bends, etc.).
In the plan preparation process, complex details and production processes are discussed with the project manager, the technologists and the installation manager and corrected as necessary.
Once prepared, the technical documentation is submitted for approval by the client’s representatives (the responsible architect or designer).
5. REVIZIJE DELAVNIŠKIH NAČRTOV
Every modification is noted in the header of the plan, with an indication of the type, date and author of the modification. Each modified plan is given a new index number.
6. APPROVED PLANS
Once the construction plans have been approved by the client, the purchasing and production process can begin. The material specification documents (lists of raw materials and veneer elements, material issue slip, etc.) are prepared. The documentation serves as the basis for the purchasing and the production process.
7. PLAN LABELLING AND ARCHIVING
Every plan is labelled with the project code, the designation of the room in the building, the plan number and the modification index number.
A central record of all plans is kept throughout all stages of design and project implementation.
All working plans are stored on a shared network computer, where they can be accessed by all the users participating in the production process, logistics, installation and project management. All the documents are also delivered to the production sector in printed form. The documentation is distributed to the heads of the individual departments by the head of production.
