Project Frog Launches KitConnect, a Design Management System for AEC

modular construction

Project Frog, the pioneer of industrialized construction, announces the launch of KitConnect. KitConnect is a SaaS Design Management Solution (DMS) for the AECO industry that enables building productization workflows in BIM. KitConnect offers a framework for repeatability, consistency, and scalability of building designs. 

KitConnect was born out of innovation from Project Frog, an Industrialized Construction pioneer with nearly 2 decades of institutional knowledge in designing, developing, and managing prefab Kits-of-Parts. Project Frog’s horizontally distributed business model working with numerous 3rd party architects, engineers, builders, and fabricators, has given the team deep insight into the ideal solution for this market.

“KitConnect goes beyond content management systems and puts managing design IP at the forefront,” says Mike Eggers, Chief Product Officer. “KitConnect is the best way to manage modular, prototype or repeatable design collections while promoting continuous improvement BIM workflows.”

A PDM solution for AEC workflows

Built on a relational-component database, KitConnect is modeled after Product Data Management (PDM) solutions in the Manufacturing industry but purpose-built for the specific demands of AEC workflows. As changes occur throughout the lifecycle of a project, designers, manufacturers, and builders can push information back to the Kit, ensuring everyone is working with relevant and current data.

KitConnect eliminates issues associated with distributed content management tools and enables a seamless collaborative approach through a cloud-based library to share content across multiple projects, design teams, and external project stakeholders.

KitConnect reduces repetitive modeling, saves time, and eliminates errors that inevitably occur when recreating content. KitConnect is ideal for project types that employ productized or repeatable approaches to building design, such as Data Centers, Multi-family Housing, Healthcare, Retail, Hospitality, Industrial/Plant Design, Office Interiors, and Single-Family Development.
