Tool to simulate the impact of sub-system alternatives to the system city – if it works it’s a massive asset for city planning

SIEMENS set up a (new) technology field called “Sustainable Cities”. They are working on a software platform which is part of a project called „City Life Cycle Management“ (CLM). Task is to simulate the interdependencies of the sub-systems within the system city. If it works, it is the perfect solution for what stakeholders in the urban context are looking for. If the CLM works as described on the website – unfortunately I havn’t had a chance to see the tool myself – Siemens has a massive tool for city planning and subsequent sales. It is the first time, to my knowledge, that a technology provider is looking at the city as a CONNECTED system of sub-systems. Excellent!
