The main goal of the pilot is to reduce project supervision operational costs by saving time on supervision tasks and reducing time overheads.
Avoiding the delays that can interrupt the flow of tasks planned by the supervisor or reduce the impact of time delays on the project plan can decrease overhead costs:
- New applications that allow a fast notification of delays and help to reschedule the supervision plan.
- Alerts are used to inform the supervisor to provide preventive actions in order to avoid or reduce the situations and non-compliance results causing delays such as material verification test rejection.
Acceleration of supervision task by reducing decision-making time and material verification tests can save supervisor time and reduce operational costs:
- The product validation process can be accelerated by sharing material specification and sending validation requests through the communication layer. Manual data gathering for the acceptance test of the steel bars is also replaced by automatic applications.
- Sharing project documents and specifications through the new communication layer can help in reduction of decision-making for reschedules. Since after the notification, the necessary documents are already available and accessible, the supervisor can make the decision and change the schedule in a shorter time.
On Site Manager
Concrete Feedback provides feedback of the results of on-site concrete tests to the Concrete Plant. With the definition of thresholds for key values the i4 App is able to generate warnings for the Concrete Plant to improve the production before the concrete is rejected at the construction site.
