UTEM is a method to plan complex timber structures made from many different parts. The customer delivers CAD files, lead details and parameters that are imported into a database. From this database, lists, plans, and machine control data are automatically created. Changes in the database directly affect the output data; These are therefore always up to date.

UTEM has the following targets:
- Automation: any number of individual parts can be handled
- Consistent data: Plans, lists and manufacturing data are generated from a single data pool.
- Convenience for clients: Project parameters (material information, minimum distances, production parameters, …) are collected in a spreadsheet and can therefore be easily checked or modified.
- Easy assembly: automatic numbering and position markings
