Building Information Modeling (BIM)
The BIM process makes it easier than every before for contractors to plan their projects and keep them organized. This option uses 3D modeling and gathers up data that makes it easy to visualize the entire project. It can be used in a number of ways, from the design, operation, and construction of a building. The more data that’s available, the more useful BIM is.
Project Management Software
What is the top goal of any construction company? To get their projects completed on time. Project management software helps them do exactly that. It is useful for day to day tasks, and it is useful for managing documents and resources that are shared between companies and partners. You have a lot of options in project management software and it can be customized to meet exact needs.
Software That Handles Estimation Tasks
Spreadsheets and other manual ways of estimating costs can be inaccurate and hard to keep track of. They can also be inconsistent when you compare one project to another. Project estimation software helps save time and boost accuracy – not to mention consistency. It is great for big contractors but even smaller contractors can take advantage of an easier way to calculate their “soft costs” – which make up nearly a one-third of most construction project costs.
Larger construction sites have a lot of equipment – and a lot of it is large, complicated, and difficult to analyze. That’s where equipment monitoring technologies come in. By this we mean both fluid analysis and electronic data – it is a great way to lower fuel use and minimize downtime. For example, monitoring issues such as idling can help lower the total fuel used and can help ensure that expensive equipment stays in its best shape for as long as possible.
One common example of equipment monitoring is the RFID, which is the acronym for radio frequency identification. It’s a great way to keep track of everything from inventory to equipment to tools. When an RFID tag is attached, you can simply scan said tag to find out when a piece of equipment was inspected, what its model number is, etc.
