An empty construction programme is shown when no objects have been added yet (fig. 1).
You can add objects by clicking the 'add object' button. A panel on the right side of the screen will open. First select an object type from the list. These types reflect the asset categories and types used within your company and can be managed in Settings > Master data (see Master data).
After selecting a type, you can pick a preset (optional). By picking a preset all fields within the panel will be filled with default values. It will also automatically fill the costs & revenue related to that preset. This allows users to quickly create a first estimate of the project's financials. Whether you pick a preset or not, the following characteristics can be defined:
- Object name
- Number of units
- Gross m² per unit
- Grossing factor
- Net m² per unit
- Height (m)
- Gross m³ per unit
By default new objects are being added to the scenario, but it's also possible to assign a new object directly to existing groups.
