Starting in January of this year, Relatics has become part of the Data & Information Management (DIM) knowledge cluster, which is part of the Engineering bachelor programme at The Hague University of Applied Sciences. Some 30 fourth-year students are taking part in the Relatics training. In addition to practical assignments they are also assigned homework in the form of online exercises and assignments.
DIM is all about preparing for decision-making in an engineering process. Essential components include Engineering Information Management (Bouw Informatie Management, or BIM), research and visualisation.
As part of the Relatics training, the students complete steps such as analysing the process, defining the information requirements, designing the information structure and setting up their own Relatics workspace to make information available. They will conclude the training with a presentation of this workspace.
As part of the Distributed Integration concept, Relatics introduces a new functionality: Referencing. Referencing dismantles the classic boundaries of Workspaces and brings information management to a higher level.
With Referencing, it is easy to integrate information from generic sources, projects and central libraries. Information can be used, enriched and built on from other workspaces, as if this information is part of your own workspace. The possibilities are endless, for example: eliminating redundant information, creating central dashboards, managing ad-hoc information or adopting external information in its original markup.

For the 6th consecutive year, Relatics received an FD Gazellen Award. Every year, the Dutch financial newspaper (Financieele Dagblad) awards the fastest growing companies in the Netherlands. These companies showed a revenue growth of more than 20% while being profitable. The nominees were analysed by a team of financial specialists from ABN Amro, Mazars and Het Financieele Dagblad.
In the Relatics basic training course a balance is continually sought between theory and practice. Recently, the online version of the Relatics basic training course became available, as an alternative to class-based training. Having two forms of training provided us with an important insight.
Starting in September, the basic training course will be offered in a single hybrid form. One online part, for which you can determine your own pace, and a practical part to be done in a group. This new structure will give the participants more knowledge and skills. Moreover, the training course is more flexible. (more…)
Solar Team Twente, in their solar car Red One, finished the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge 2015 in second position in the Challenger Class. Solar Team Twente consists of 19 students from Saxion and the University of Twente. The race, held in Australia, started in Darwin on 18 October and ended 3000 km later in Adelaide on 22 October.
Relatics sponsored Solar Team Twente’s use of Relatics for Systems Engineering. The team also uses Relatics to manage the sponsors, meetings and actions. Before qualifying, the car was thoroughly tested for conformance with the rules and requirements – a process called scrutineering. Naturally, Relatics’ Systems Engineering Workspace was used to manage conformance with all these rules and requirements. (more…)
