While we don’t have our own WFP software and we are agnostic in the use of off the shelf software, we are very good at making it work. We have successfully applied ConstructSim, iConstruct, Smart Construction, and Smart Materials to projects and we have proven that these software packages are fit for purpose when applied to support AWP.
The key success factor in setting up the software is that our Information Management team, engaged as members of the project management team, have an acute understanding of the data and formats that are required. The team interfaces with the Engineering and Procurement teams early in the project to ensure that we have the right data and that the generators of data know that we expect them to deliver it.
The next important ingredient is that we establish a project cloud and use it to host a data warehouse, WFP software, document control, material management and the project schedule.
This allows us to map integration between these data sources and to provide simple, secure access for all of the project stakeholders.
Having all of this information in the one place, in an environment that is managed by the project management team allows us to generate project reports from a single source of project data.
This means that the WFP software is applied as a project management tool, not just for the purpose of facilitating work packaging for Workface Planning.
Utilizing digital online data visualization to enhance your projects status is no longer a luxury – it’s now a necessity if you want to be on top of day to day decision making. In today’s world, the ability to analyze critical metrics and measure your project performance through various KPIs you can develop without restriction is an incredibly important driver of project success.
By serving up data and information through various data connectors and sources, and consolidating it into one central customized dashboard, it’s possible to extract value from your insights swiftly and share them with key stakeholders in an accessible way that will result in the kind of action that will improve productivity and drive down costs. This instant and cohesive access to analytics will also improve the internal communication process, while offering an increased level of data-driven value across the project and amongst all stakeholders 24/7.
Mobile dashboards allow users to analyze, study, and communicate key business data in a flexible, accessible format, a mobile app dashboard can empower people from all departments and companies to share and leverage digital data to make more informed, accurate, and valuable business decisions that result in continual improvement, growth, and evolution.
