Customers can reach telephonic support (Prio 1) on working days from 09:00 - 17:00 (CEST) excluding the days declared as Dutch public holiday close days.

All incidents relating to the 3Di software with the exception of enhancement/feature requests are recorded and followed up at no additional cost.

When reporting an issue, please provide all information that is needed for the service desk to reproduce the issue, such as schematisation ID, 3Di model ID, revision number, simulation ID, etc.

If you have an issue with generating 3Di models or crashing simulations, please follow the Problem solving guide. If the problem persists despite following the recommendations in the Problem solving guide, please mention in your service desk ticket that you have already attempted these steps.

Priority incidents

The responsiveness of Nelen & Schuurmans is driven by the severity of an incident. All incidents within the agreement can be subdivided into priorities. There are three levels here. Each level is based on an urgency. The initiative for determining urgency lies primarily with the applicant. The levels are:

  • Prio 1 (high): 3Di functionality is completely unavailable or inaccessible. The situation requires immediate attention. The work and/or management processes are hindered or the importance to the Client is large with no workaround possible.

  • Prio 2 (medium): The work and/or control processes are hindered or the Client’s importance is large, but a workaround is possible.

  • Prio 3 (low): Not urgent. 3Di is impaired, a single function is impacted but key business processes are not interrupted. The problem causes minimal operational or business impact, a general technical question or enhancement request.

Model specific questions

Beyond the scope are questions about schematisations or questions about the validity of 3Di results, for which the customer can purchase an additional service. For more info the customer can contact the local 3Di consultant or email to
