Watch the “Optimized Planning” Industry Process Experience at work for AEC Project Managers and Construction Planners [VIDEO]By Akio
In this video, you will see how the Project Execution System helps a project manager resolve discrepancies between a construction plan and the actual execution plan.
The project manager manipulates a 3D view of the supply, status and delivery schedule of materials. He or she also uses Last Planner methodology to validate parts, materials, and contractor supply availability.
Two proposed construction plans are handed off to the construction planner, who evaluates the scenarios in a 4D environment.
Using the Assembly Evaluation application, the construction planner sees that key parts aren’t delivered on time. Also, there’s a problem with how a prefabricated staircase is supposed to be installed. The planner changes the EPC request to deliver staircase in 3 pieces, and updates the work package.
Then, the construction planner uses the Resource Simulation application to see how forklifts and various types of cranes will move materials around the site. He or she is notified of a discrepancy in crane deployment: a crane is scheduled to be in use on two different tasks at the same time.
The Resource Balancing application helps resolve the clash, and the Auto Placement feature helps to best position the crane.
Finally, the general contractor takes the input from the project manager and construction planner, and creates a fully-optimized construction schedule.
Watch these scenarios and more play out.
Optimized Planning is part of the Optimized Construction Industry Solution Experience, powered by the 3DEXPERIENCE platform from Dassault Systèmes.
