Case Study

BOMBARDIER:
Symbiosis of space and project structures

The work processes of the independent company BOMBARDIER are project-driven through and through. As a global manufacturer of business jets, Bombardier uses complex and constantly changing project structures that permanently alter operational processes.

Based on flexibility as a necessity, 250 new office workstations are to be integrated into the available space. The goal: to lease an external area and to give up two office containers. How was the optimization implemented with the help of ReCoTech software?
