Model Maintenance Overview

You can create applications for a residence based on a model. A model is a preliminary work or construction that serves as a plan from which a final product is to be made.

To create new applications based on models, you must create and maintain the models. For example, suppose that a contractor plans to build a large subdivision containing five basic house models. Each of these models can have many different variations such as: the number of bedrooms and location, style of fireplaces, size of garage, and size and design of decks. The basic floor plans of these models will remain the same. The application types remain the same and a significant portion of the application information would be identical from application to application. You can create five different application models with variations to accommodate the different variation choices. Then, when the contractor submits building applications, you may simplify the application intake process by using existing models.
