Maestro Project

The Maestro project is a digital twin of the fictional Swift Construction Company (SCC), a representative small-to-medium-sized engineering and manufacturing company. The SCC is based on the fictional Swift Construction Company in the Tom Swift series of youth science fiction and adventure books published in the early 1900’s. 

The SCC provides the back story to explore engineering product development and general business workflows, using a non-proprietary data set based on:

  • Parts – part numbers, revisions, sources, related documents, bills-of-materials, and change management.
  • Projects – purpose, requirements, plan, people, tasks, scheduling, forecast and consumed labor and costs.
  • Issues – reports, relationships, investigations, and corrective actions.
  • Stock – on-hand quantities of parts, including serial numbers, supply chain, purchasing, and traceability.
  • Files – engineering and ad hoc documents, with revisions, authors, editors, approvers, and search tags.
  • Users – authentication, groups and access control.
