We use physical models and tools to get a practical hands-on experience with working on the project
How physical models and tools are used in RoC drills
Experience shows that the use of physical models and tools adds two extra dimensions to what is normally achieved through workshops; By rehearsing with models the participants get a realistic visual impression of the project and by using tools the participants will teach each other their respective interdependencies.
The use of physical models and tools
On top of this it is motivating for the participants, which generates a high engagement in discussions. The tools must be designed such that they have the key functionalities relevant for the desired discussions and they must be to scale.
The use of tools and models in a RoC drill is in particular powerful if they are used by the engineers and experts who are responsible for executing the real project. By the experts’ use of the models and tools in the rehearsal they show you what is in their heads, which in turn will show if there are parts of the plan that needs more attention.

The use of physical models and tools tends to drive discussions into a greater level of detail. Experience shows that it is not only the devil that lies in the detail, the profit does as well.Models and tools can either be delivered by yourself or by us.
Through dialogue RoC Consult specialises in designing and producing models and tools specific to your project… and they are of course yours to keep after the RoC drill.
Which models and tools would you require to simulate your project?
The result for Gode Wind of executing ROC Drills is stress test of schedules, alignment of interfaces, Risk assessment, Health & Safety Environment assessment, insure implementation of lesson learned.
Furthermore, the project gained a clear view on the split of responsibility between internal resources and external stakeholders.
The ROC Drill concept for testing the plan for larger construction projects can only be recommended.
