The civil engineering 3D+ guide developed by MTS defines data formats and digital construction processes from planning to billing in conjunction with the corresponding product platform MTS PILOT. It provides a toolbox for implementing digital building sites, from the processing of building plans, construction, and 3D machine control to measurement and billing. In contrast to existing isolated solutions, MTS always factors in the entire construction process and the many interfaces involved. As a result, its components work together in concert, as well as in combination with the individual pieces of equipment in its package solution. In addition, the overall package is specially designed to account for specific needs in underground and road construction by automatically fulfilling the requirements of relevant regulations such as VOB and REB (Construction Tendering and Contract Regulations; Regulation for electronical work accounting).

Last but not least, the MTS solution boasts an extremely simple application that requires no expert knowledge. In another unique feature, the complete digital construction process can be mapped and managed on a single computer.
