Cost and value engineering tool COVE is developed for and used by YIT, the leading construction company in Finland.

COVE enables transformation of data from heterogenous sources into consistent product model and integration with estimation.

COVE is implemented with Design++, a knowledge based engineering tool. Design ++ uses AutoCad or MicroStation as a graphical display engine. All user inputs are passed through the user interface to Design++ which controls the CAD engine accordingly.
