Sistema5 improve with two new modules delivering expecially dedicated to Open-Space management and complex connectione systems:

Solver : dedicated to Open-Space management and complex connection systems, analyses the layout of base components such as worktops and structures, switches on modes for the automatic positioning of structural elements such as legs, beams, skirts, screens etc. – Customers can intervene on components, both adding, removing or modifying them. Based on an established logic with a language easily modifiable by customers, this system enables endless combinations of component assembly and implementation solutions also when components are inserted later on in the manufacturing process. Together with S5 - Features Manager, this system can completely manage customized components thanks to several modes of feature and price calculation.

S5- Features Manager : a parametric module features-based able to manage item features both as for data management program and for graphical layout. Using features and relevant values and a suitable macro-language a management field of behaviours is obtained where features represent “variable parts of the language”. Thanks to this new module it is possible to manage for instance:

- Graphics element dimensioning
- The positioning of relevant joints and nodes to solve mounting and production information
- The settings of structural variants and material/color options
- The estimate and calcultation of dimensions and quantities at different levels of the part-list
- The price estimate based on special logics
- The generation and re-generation of the codes related to the features
