How to Eliminate Waste and Increase Profits with “Optimized Construction”

By Akio

The Optimized Construction Industry Solution Experience from Dassault Systèmes integrates AEC project data, tracks progress, and brings together project teams – including owners, architects, engineers, general contractors, fabricators, and sub-contractors – all on a single, intuitive, collaborative platform.

You get the value of:

  • Integrated Project Plans—where project data files are integrated with plans in the same location – bringing together all information in one place.
  • Project Visibility— through real-time dashboards that summarize project status and give visibility to all participants. With real-time updates, you can identify potential problem areas and take action early on.
  • The Power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform— that puts everyone on the same platform, giving people the ability to talk, discuss, chat, and collaborate on a project together;

Optimized Construction connects the dots between project progress, project efforts, and corresponding 3D data – bringing it all together under one 3D umbrella for a “single source of truth”.

Integrated Project Plans

With Integrated Project Plans, AEC professionals can integrate data with project plans in an easy-to-use interface. Each project member has access to a dashboard, where files can be easily uploaded.

The 3DEXPERIENCE platform enables importing of IFC data into an object-based platform that allows individual sharing of objects to the right audience.

From the dashboard, users receive real-time notifications when fresh data is uploaded. By using these capabilities, searching through email Inboxes for the latest information will become a thing of the past.

Formal and Informal Project Collaboration

In addition to automatic notifications, the platform provides a forum for more informal collaboration.

Through 3DSWYM, a 3DEXPERIENCE social media platform, instant messages can be exchanged among platform users to confirm an upload, ask questions, or provide additional information.

Design Review

Optimized Construction provides a formal space for the crucial review of project information during the design stage and data aggregation. Users can place markups directly in the data, pinpointing areas of concern on the model.

After placing a markup, users can send a message from within that page to alert the responsible individual that their attention is needed, ensuring that no note goes unnoticed.

These reviews can be connected to the project plans to efficiently keep track of progress, and each markup stays in place indefinitely, so that a concern can be tracked through the life of the project.

Project Visibility through Dashboards

The platform’s Project Business Status View allows a project manager to see real-time updates for every aspect of the project. This project visibility at each step of design and construction helps ensure that potential problems are spotted well before they occur.

By integrating your fabricator into this process, you can monitor the real-time status of the work, preventing cost and schedule overruns and enabling him to get paid earlier.

Project Management

Project managers get an overview of the project’s status from the dashboard and the tasks that need to be addressed. This overview helps users quickly identify overdue tasks that could possibly delay the schedule. The project manager can flag those items within the dashboard to ask for an informal update from a colleague.

Users are able to make an update in the graphical interface, with no need to move into a table to enter data and recreate the visual representation. The moment those tasks are updated, the new status becomes visible to the project manager.

Collaboration and Approvals

With Collaboration and Approvals, project managers can follow-up on missing deliverables either through an instant message or through the more official channels of the platform’s Project Management functionality. Team members can quickly respond with an instant message and, once a formal resolution has been entered, the project manager will immediately see that the urgent issue has been updated.

The power of the 3DEXPERIENCE platform is its ability to bring data and people together in one place.

From unstructured communication among colleagues through the 3DEXPERIENCE platform to more formal project management tools, the platform is as much about improving communication as it is about sharing information.
