Master Systems Integration (MSI)

The Intellient process of bringing together component sub-systems into one “uber" system is referred to as Master Systems Integration (MSI). For projects that involve MSI, we manage the coordination and delivery of all project integrated systems.

On-Time Results.
On Budget.
Quality Assured.

Our Project Lead Integrator begins by developing a road map, ensuring that system delivery subcontractors meet the necessary requirements on time and in conjunction with all technical specifications and requirements. Subcontractors may perform systems integration around their specific part of the solution, but Intellient’s integrators are responsible for all systems integration and delivery. We have significant experience and familiarity in both Design-Build (DB) and Construction Management at Risk (CMAR) environments.

Our MSI team members are experienced technologists who understand the complexity of airport technology systems and the integration points of each. To maintain continuity of information and expectations, the systems integrator typically remains engaged at the 30%-60% design development milestone for a given project in a design assist capacity. This may involve digesting airport standards and disseminating complete scopes of work inclusive of enabling projects. Concurrently, this proves to be valuable in finalizing project designs and budgets for the larger piece of work.

Intellient has extensive experience and qualifications working with the following systems through all project phases.
