Program Development and Enhancement

Successful Engineering Design & Construction businesses are those prepared to anticipate and head off risks associated with project specifications and regulatory requirements, whether it’s in environmental, health or safety. Elsevier R&D Solutions help companies by merging information from a broad range of disciplines into a single platform of interconnected resources that catalyze discovering and acting upon answers.

Manufacturing and Production Optimization

Our solutions fuel informed decision-making: dynamic content can help predict the outcome of designs to reduce testing cycles. Invaluable references allow taking HSE regulations into account at early stages of design and assessing the impact of design changes on outcome quality. And best practices documentation provide unique know-how to optimize project capacity, management and control.

Operational Efficiency

The complexity of project specifications and execution often leads to exceeding time and budget limits. Project planning should be built on innovative but concrete and carefully assessed solutions, with the transparency and detail needed to construct competitive yet realistic timelines and quotes. Elsevier’s information tools can provide you with reliable, relevant knowledge to inform this planning.
